Then Library Elf may have the solution for you!
Elf is a web-based and email tool for library users to keep track of their library borrowings. Elf is like a personal assistant whose task is to help you keep track of what you have on loan from the library. Elf provides:
- Email and/or RSS alerts before items are due
- Email and/or RSS alerts on overdues and holds
- Consolidated list of your or your family’s library loans and holds
- Cell phone text message alerts for holds (US & Canada)
- Real-time checking by browser
Designed with the busy or avid library user in mind, Elf is ideal for families with multiple library cards or for individuals who have cards from different libraries.
Elf makes it easier to keep track of what’s overdue, overdue or ready for pickup from one or more library accounts. Users have the option to consolidate their library accounts into one account if they wish. This account is checked every day and email notices are sent when items are coming due, overdue or when holds are ready for pick-up. As well, get up-to-date, real-time information by browser.
