'Text me this call number'

Since more and more students are using their cell phones to write down call numbers for books, the Library has added a new feature to the catalog that enables users to send call numbers to their cell phones via text messages.

Now, when you search PILOT, our catalog, and find a book whose call number you want to write down, you may send the call number to your cell phone via a text message. Here's what you'll see in PILOT:

Click on the link 'Text me this call number' and then enter your cell phone number and select your provider. The call number will be sent to you via a text message, saving you the trouble of writing it down on slip of paper. Then just go the Collection and the floor where the book is located.

As always, if you have questions, ask a Reference Librarian for assistance.
