Beginning this fall, Old Dominion University Libraries will use e-mail to notify users of holds or recalls, items needed for another user, reminders about end-of-semester renewals, overdue notices, final statements, fines or fees, and bills for replacements.

Paper and e-mail notices will both be sent beginning August 28th and continuing through the fall semester. Paper notices will be discontinued as of January 8, 2001. After that date, all notices will be sent by e-mail to assigned e-mail addresses.

E-mail addresses are automatically added to the library's patron database. Anyone not using his or her assigned e-mail address should provide forwarding from the assigned e-mail address. If an e-mail message is undelivered, the user will be contacted by phone.

In conjunction with this service, Circulation Services will implement a new e-mail address that will allow users to contact circulation staff to request a renewal, report a change of address, or to ask questions. The e-mail address is circ1@libstaff.lib.odu.edu and will be monitored daily by circulation staff.

Questions about either service may be directed to Gisele McAdoo, Circulation Services Supervisor, (gmacadoo@odu.edu) at 683-4166 or Theresa Johnson, Head of Access Services, (tpjohnso@odu.edu) at 683-4174.
