Text a Call Number: Rice Library’s Newest Service

Tired of writing down book call numbers on old catalog cards or trying to memorize them? Use our newest library service: Text a Call Number in the Rice Library Catalog! Here’s how:

  1. Start in the Rice Library Catalog. Type any topic, title, or author. E.g. urban legends.
  2. Select a book from the list by clicking on its title.
  3. Click on “Text call number & location to your cell phone.” Choose your cell phone provider and type your 10-digit phone number.
  4. Take your cell phone with you to the stacks and locate the book – it’s that easy!

Rose Scruggs, Electronic Services Coordinator, and Mike Adcock, Library Computer Services Administrator, added this new library service. Thanks, Rose and Mike!
