Library Elf

Friday, January 20th, 2006 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Library Elf

This is a great site for all you library goers. You can track the items that you take out and have on hold, and you can get great e-mail alerts so nothing is late. Best of all, it’s free to use. My dad sure could use Library Elf to get his books and magazines back to the library on time.

The first thing you need to do- even before you sign up- is to see if your library is listed on Library Elf. If it isn’t, you may be able to submit it. You may also want to check out the FAQ, as they’ve answered a lot of questions that you may have. You can also check out the Demo link to get an idea of what their email notifications look like. Once you have verified that your library is there, then you should sign up.

All you need to sign up is a working email address. You enter your email address, a password, and your first and last name. Then you click Create Elf Account. It’s just that simple to get onto elf. Now the next step is to enter your library information. You’ll need your library card number and a PIN (Personal Identification Number) if your library has one. If you don’t know about the PIN, click on the Library Card Pin link on the sign up sheet. It will open another window where you can check if your library has a PIN. Next, set your preferences for when you would like to receive notices. Now you are all set to start using Elf.

Now, the really nice thing is that you can track more than one library card. So parents can keep track of what the kids are getting out and what they have on hold by adding their card. Maybe my mom should add my dad’s library card and keep track of all the magazines he gets out and then forgets when they are due!

I think that with this easy-to-use system, you shouldn’t have a problem getting all your books back on time, and keeping tabs on those items on hold that you’re waiting on.

Elf is another way to manage your time and make life easier.
