Abstract

This speaker will explain how she brought texting functionality to the Aleph OPAC used by the 24 colleges & schools in CUNY, allowing users to send item holdings information to themselves. Implemented in April 2013, this feature is already incredibly popular, with over 2,100 messages sent in just over 3 months. Allie will share the code she wrote (already available on the EL Commons) and discuss possible enhancements for future iterations of the functionality, such as API integration and the use of a dedicated SMS server, as well as its potential for use with Primo.
