- Library Operational Change: Check Out Transactions-to-Email
In addition to receiving the convenient courtesy notices that we send, starting in January 2015, the Library will email check out transaction receipts to patrons.
What does this mean for you?
Convenience and speed. The transaction receipt that contains the item(s) and due date(s) you checked out will be sent to your email account—you will no longer have to wait for slow printouts or worry about losing the receipts. [You can feel good about using a little less paper too.]
Still want a printed receipt?
Library personnel will print a receipt of your transaction upon request.
TIP: You can always access your online Library account (https://darius.uleth.ca/patroninfo/) to review your current check outs, track your history, perform renewals, submit hold requests, and more!
