Renewing library materials online–even on your smartphone

The other day I got a courtesy notice from the Olson Library, reminding me that I had books that would be due soon. I was reading my e-mail on my iPhone, and, when I clicked the link for renewal in the e-mail, it took me straight to a mobile version of the page for renewing library materials. I entered my name and bar code (yes, I have my bar code memorized, and my life is better for it). I submitted the information, and my books were renewed.

I can also use the mobile version of the library web site to find library materials, and finding it couldn’t be easier. Just enter the URL for the regular site (, and you’ll be redirected to the mobile site. You can also get there by clicking on an Olson Library link from any NMU page.
