The library "e-shelf" acts similar to a shopping cart or library bookshelf, in this case.
How or why would I use this feature?
(IMPORTANT: YOU MUST SIGN IN TO SAVE ITEMS in the e-SHELF for future use.)
1. Perform search in library catalog
3. Item is added to your e-Shelf - To check, click e-Shelf (in the upper-right hand corner of any page in the catalog)
My Account features allow you to renew items, check due dates and the status of Summit requests, see if you have fines, or any other message from the library.
Check the status of your due date(s) or renew items that can be renewed.
NOTE: Summit items cannot be renewed.
LIBRARY HACK: You can request another copy of the same item via Summit a week before the due date to get another copy of the same item.
Check on the status of different types of requests:
Type: Summit - items you have requested via Summit. Check the Status column to see if your item is on its way
Type: Hold - these are local holds placed on items we own at Evergreen.
You can even cancel requests that have not been shipped. Under the ACTION column, select Cancel.
Queries are the searches you have performed during a session. You can use this function to:
Review searches within one session to recall results:
In this example, I had already performed 3 searches. I searched using keywords:
By clicking on my Queries tab, I can choose to perform these searches again.
Save queries for use later and setup alerts:
1. Do a search, in this example, I used the author Rainbow Rowell
2. Click Save Query
3. Name your query
NOTE: Alerts typically go out at 12PM each day.
