When the OPAC users find the item they want, before going to the shelf to get it, usually they need to write down the call number and/or other item information. But many times they can't find paper and/or pencil around. And the library staff have pain to keep supply them. Now this enhancement called Text Messaging enables the users to send the call number plus item title and location directly to their cell phones from the OPAC record display page. They no longer need to write down anything. This feature is implemented on Voyager 6.x and Solaris, using javascript and perl. It should work on Voyager 7.x too.
