Sometimes it is hard keeping up with new material from your favorite authors, especially knowing right when new material from that author gets added to the library collection. Well not anymore with Dearborn Library’s new Author Alerts service.
Once signed up you will be able to request an email or text alert for as many authors, performers, or studios that you would like. Simply provide a first and/or the last name and click add. The system will also show you recent alerts that you and others have submitted (if you opt to), as well as suggestions for popular authors to be alerted about. Once a title has been added to the library collection that is on your alert list the system sends you a link back to the catalog, so you can be in line for the new items.
Features of the new service:
- Unlimited number of alerts
- Email or text notification
- Alerts include links straight to new material in the catalog
- Discover new authors
