Are you tired of fumbling with pencils and paper when you need to write down a call number? Is your handwriting so bad that you can’t even read it?

Don’t bother scribbling your call numbers down any more! When you find a book in the catalog that you want to check out, send yourself a text message with all the information you’ll need.

Let’s say you found this book in the catalog: http://gilfind.valdosta.edu/vufind/Record/412390 Sure, you could write down the title, the call number, and the location of the book. But you could also use the “text this” button to send all of that information straight to your mobile phone!

This is where you'll find the magical "text this" button in the catalog.


We use this feature all the time and hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do!
