NEW: Text Messaging in the Online Catalog

C/W MARS introduces two new features in the online catalog; Text Call Number to Phone & Text Notices for Holds Pickup

  • 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 Hold Pickup--Patrons can now opt to receive a text message when their hold is ready for pickup, instead of a phone call or an email.  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.
