E-mail Notification: favorite authors, titles, genres, etc.
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
Is there a way that patrons can sign up for e-mail notifications when
their favorite authors, titles, genres (keywords), etc. arrive at a
Library? For example, I may want to sign up for any new books that
arrive at a Library that have to do with Civil War. Similarly, another
patron may want to sign up for e-mail notification when a new John
Grisham novel is released.
In an ideal situation, the way we would like this system to work is as
follows. A patron would sign up for this notification via the web.
Then when the e-mail is sent, say for a new John Grisham book, the
e-mail would tell the recipient about the new title and include a URL
where the patron could place a hold for the new book. When the patron
clicked on this URL, the patron would login to his/her account. And a
hold would be placed for this title.
If this is possible, could you please tell me what is needed? Modules,
