Texting features in the online catalog

C/W MARS is introducing two new features on Monday, February 3 in the online catalog!

  • Text call number to phone — This allows patrons or staff from the OPAC to text a call number to a cell phone. When viewing an individual record, patrons can click on the link labeled .text. which will take them to a form to enter a cell phone number and receive a text with call number and location information for the individual copy.
  • Text Notices for Holds Pickup — Patrons can now opt to receive a text message when their hold is ready for pickup. When placing a hold, the patron can choose to enter a cell phone number and when their hold becomes available, they will receive a text message.

Please be aware that standard text charges will apply.
