Responsibilities of Library Membership
Borrower Account Notifications from the Library
When letters or invoices are posted, they will be sent to the
current address on your library record. It is each borrower's
responsibility to notify Lending Services staff immediately of any
change of address
during the academic year, (including study breaks), during Summer
School, and during the Summer Vacation period.
Failure to do this will not be taken as an excuse for not
receiving Library correspondence.
You can opt to receive notification in advance that library
materials are due, or that material is waiting for you to pick up. For
more information see Txt messages.
