Circulation - E-Mail Notification Service
E-mail Notification Service
The table below lists the circulation notices available EXCLUSIVELY through email. Users may check outstanding loans, current due dates, status of recalled items, current fines, and additional information through the My Library Account section of the Minerva catalog at http://minerva.albany.edu/. Email messages are a courtesy and users remain responsible for timely return of library materials and payment of any library obligations regardless of whether email notices are received. Users without an email address are not sent printed notices as a substitute for the email notices listed below.
In accordance with the University’s Guidelines for Email as an Official Means of Communication with Students, circulation notices will only be sent to the University provided albany.edu addresses. For students who prefer to use their personal email, instructions for forwarding email can be found in the ITS Wiki.
Circulation notices are sent to faculty/staff’s university email addresses by default. However, faculty and staff can select a preferred, alternate e-mail address for all University notifications through MyUAlbany. Instructions for selecting a preferred, alternate email address can be found at http://www.albany.edu/whois/fixup.html.
