Email Notice  Library E-mail Notices  

The Library will now send circulation notices by e-mail.  We have added campus e-mail addresses to most student patron records.  E-mail notification will be used throughout the year, including breaks, holidays, and Summer Quarter.

Who's included

All Library patrons with a current Library Card or campus Golden Eagle ID card are eligible for this service.  If there is no e-mail address in your Library record, you will continue to receive notices by regular mail.

Some new students, faculty, and staff, and non-CSULA categories of Library card holders may not yet have e-mail addresses in their records.  Those individuals should either:  1) go online to MyLibrary, login to their library account, and click on modify personal information to add their email address; or  2) go to the Circulation Desk to have their e-mail address added.

What's included

Notices sent by email include: 

  • Courtesy notices ~ sent before the due date as a reminder (email only;  not available in print) 

  • Overdue notices ~ (will be printed if no email address) 

  • Hold cancellations (will be printed if no email address)

Notices sent by email & via U.S. or campus mail include:

  • Recall notices

  • Hold pick-up notices

Notices sent by campus or U.S. mail only:

  • Bills (including invoices for lost or unreturned materials, statements for
    overdue fines, etc.)  

It is your responsibility to keep the Library informed on changes in your mailing address and/or e-mail address.

It is the responsibility of each borrower to know when their materials are due.  As a courtesy, when materials become overdue, the Library will send an overdue notice.  Failure to receive this notice is not grounds for the cancellation of fines.  Most library notices other than bills are sent via e-mail when possible.

Please note that you are responsible for setting any spam filters to allow such notices to be delivered.   Setting your filters to receive mail from the Library will also allow you to email copies of records from the Library Catalog.

Campus MyCSULA Identity accounts
All CSULA students, faculty, and staff are eligible to have campus MyCSULA Identity accounts.  If you do not have one, please Click Here for more information. You can expect other divisions of the University to use your official MyCSULA Identity account to correspond with you.

If you do desire to use another service's email account, you can easily forward
your email from your CSULA email account to another account.  Click Here for
information on how to do it.

Non-CSULA users & questions
For the following circumstances, you need to go to the Circulation Desk on the 1st floor of Library North:

  • If you need to have your e-mail address added to your Library record and are unable to do so online with MyLibrary

  • If you need to cancel your e-mail notification completely
