How it works
First, create an account. Enter a valid email address to create the account. A confirmation email will be sent to that address which you will need to see in order to complete registration.
To subscribe, either search for an author in the search box, or browse by clicking on "Browse authors." Click on "Subscribe to posts tagged with..." for the author you want to follow.
If you want to add more authors, come back to this site, log in and choose a new author to follow.
What doesn't work
This service is limited to books.
This service does not notify you when a hold is in, etc, and is not related to the text alert service connected to your library card. This is a separate service.
Since we order far in advance of release, often the information that we are using for this site is sparse. Usually, there is a cover, but probably not a summary of the book.
libAlerts will not work for eBooks.
Some non-fiction standing order materials, like travel books, may not work; but standing-order fiction will.
We cannot refine by format, or account for series.
Mobile interface There is a mobile interface. iPad users will be directed to the mobile version. You cannot switch between interfaces.
We won't give anyone access to your personal info. Period.
