Library Elf Alerts

WSU Librariesí 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.

  • Stay in charge of your borrowing record by selecting up to 7 days of advance notice for due dates to keep those fines at bay.
  • Know immediately when a requested item is available so you can stop by the library on your way to or from campus.

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

Library Elf is fully supported on the following browsers: Windows Internet Explorer 5.5 and higher, Mac OS X Safari. Library Elf is partially supported on the following browsers: Mozilla Firefox (Windows and Mac), Netscape for Windows.
