Text Notifications

Musselman Library now offers text/SMS notification reminders! This service is available for all patrons.

Text Message Alerts

Hourly items such as laptop/phone chargers and course reserves will receive a text reminder for each item 15 minutes before it is due. Reminders for other items, such as books and DVDs, will be sent at 8:00pm (Eastern) the day before the item is due; if you have multiple items due the next day, the notification will include a count of the total number of items due.

Text messages are sent 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Charges from your text messaging provider may apply.

Fill out the form to register for text notifications; if you need assistance, email circ_email@gettysburg.edu or call 717-337-7024. After submitting the form, your library account will be updated within 1-2 business days and you will receive a confirmation text.
