If the Allen Library does not have an item that I think should be in its collection, can I request that it be purchased?
Yes, the Allen Library welcomes suggestions for purchase from patrons. Please stop by the circulation desk and ask for an acquisition request form. An online version of the form can be found at: http://library.hartford.edu/services/suggtitle.asp. You are also encouraged to bring suggestions to Tracey Rudnick, Allen Library Head Librarian. We try to fill requests that fall within curricular objectives whenever possible. If the item you suggest is not immediately on hand, we can assist you in borrowing it from another library through interlibrary loan.
Can I receive notification that my library items are coming due?
Yes, you may set a variety of message and notification settings by logging into the online library catalog (http://hartford.waldo.kohalibrary.com/). The library catalog log in can be found at the top of the catalog homepage. Enter your 8-digit ID as the login. Enter your surname (with capitalized first letter) as the password if you are logging in for the first time.
Before making any notification changes, please make sure you have an email listed that you check regularly in the contact information box found under the tab “My Personal Details” found on the left side of the page.
Under the tab “My Messaging,” you may set an advanced notice for upcoming due items. Select the number of days prior to an item’s due date, on which you would like to receive a notification from the drop-down menu to the right of “Advance Notice.” Next, check the box in the “Email” column. Finally, click on “Submit Changes” to activate this notification change.
