New Notice Features in NYMCat

NYMCat, the library online catalog, moved to a new platform this Fall. In the new system some notices, such as overdue notices you will receive automatically, and others you will have to activate. Those you need to activate are:

  • Item due: Receive an advance reminder e-mail the morning item(s) are due.
  • Advance notice: Receive an advance reminder e-mail days before a due date.
  • Hold filled: In our new system you can place hold on books that are available in the library. Receive notice when a hold is ready for pick up at the library.
  • Item check-in / out: Receive an e-mail every time an item is checked in or out to your account  Consider it a receipt.

To activate these notices log in to your NYMCat account  and choose “your messaging” from the left hand menu. If you need assistance logging in, see this post.
