Opt in if you want your library notifications via text messages

Starting this month we will introduce a service for library users to opt in to receive library notices for holds and overdues as text messages. Text message notices are sent real time from 9 am to 11pm.

To opt in, go to http://oskicat.berkeley.edu, sign in via My OskiCat to access your account, and set profile preferences to receive text notifications by clicking on the “Update Your Account” button.

Complete the form (enter mobile phone number: area code and number), check box to accept terms and conditions, click on the “Submit” button to finalize update. A text message will be sent to the mobile number requesting a YES text reply to subscribe to SMS Library Alerts. A congratulatory text message will be sent confirming the subscription.

To opt out, reply to any received text message with Stop, Quit, Cancel, Unsubscribe, or Stop All. Or, text Stop to either 35143 or 82453 to stop all messages. An alternative method is signing into My OskiCat and set preference to stop all text notifications by removing the check from the “Opt In” box and deleting the mobile phone number.
Please note that message and data rate may apply depending on your mobile service provider plan.
