Text Message Alerts

SIGN UP FOR TEXT MESSAGE ALERTS FROM THE LIBRARY'S CATALOG, GEORGE, & RECEIVE YOUR LIBRARY NOTICES ON YOUR MOBILE DEVICE

The Georgetown University Library now gives patrons the option to receive library notice alerts on their mobile devices.

These text message alerts are for Georgetown University Library materials only. You can sign up for these text messages by logging into Your Account in GEORGE on the Library's website. You can also receive text message alerts for WRLC material by subscribing to WRLC's text message alert system under Your Account by clicking on the WRLC Library Account link.

Patrons are encouraged to check the status of their account often at Your Account at the Georgetown University Library website.

The use of text message alerts is an optional service provided by your library and should not be relied on as a source for overdue notices, fines, or any other account notifications. Non-receipt of a text message alert notification does not excuse you from the responsibility of returning items on time or paying fines and/or fees.

Notices include:

Hold Pickup
Hold Cancellation
Courtesy Notices
Overdue Notices
Hourly Overdue Notices
Renewal Problem Notices
