We’re Going Green!

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Due to popular demand, we have discontinued our long-standing practice of providing paper due date slips when you check out books and media items.  Our new paperless receipt system is designed to save you time as well as reduce paper waste and give the environment a break.

From now on whenever you check out books at Bailey/Howe Library you will be sent an email the next morning that reminds you which items you borrowed and what their due dates will be.  That message will also remind you where you can go online to see a list of all of the books you have checked out and when they are due.  Because media items circulate for a very short time period you will not receive an email reminder for the media items you borrow.

Please let us know what you think of this new initiative by writing Aaron Nichols, Access/Media Services Librarian at aaron.nichols@uvm.edu
