  1. When you click on the “Text It” option, a window pops up from which you can enter your phone number and click send. Always double-check to make sure that the information is correct before you send it to your phone.

    If you change your mind and decide not to send it, be sure to close the window – otherwise it may get hidden behind other windows. Then you might end up texting yourself with the call number of a book you (or someone else) had looked at previously.

  2. The pop up box had the title of the book I was looking for but the wrong call number. This happened several times.
