Libraries allow electronic access to users' records


The MIT Libraries are now providing a new service that will allow library users to view details of their library record.

The service allows you to view (among other details) what books are checked out and when they are due, any current fines owed to the Libraries, and whether the address and telephone number the Libraries have on file for you are correct.

The service is currently not available via WebBarton. To access this service through a telnet session or on a library catalog terminal, you must obtain your library barcode number and provide library staff with a password. To learn more about this service, inquire at any library circulation desk.

Also, the Libraries are now notifying users by e-mail when items placed on hold become available for checkout and when any items checked out have been recalled for another patron. If you wish to receive these notices, you should check at a circulation desk to verify that the Libraries have your correct e-mail address.
