Library Elf Alerts

WSU Libraries' has subscribed to the Elf notification system--making it FREE to you!--to help you organize your Library account. Sign up today for Elf to receive courtesy notices sent by e-mail or text message. Elf will notify you when your requested item is ready for pick-up, is nearing its due date, or is overdue.

The Elf system is separate from the WSU Libraries' existing e-mail notification. Elf provides text messages and RSS alerts for instant notification on the status of your borrowed materials and requests.
