When you Move

Be sure to update your email and postal address with Circulation Services when they change. We use this information to:

  • Notify you that items are ready to be picked up.
  • To send overdue notices
  • To send courtesy reminders for Library items declares lost.
  • To send you an invoice when fines exceed $5.00

If your contact information is inaccurate, you may not receive these important notices and your ability to register for  classed or to graduate may be affected. Please note that the library only sends these notices to your official SF State  email address and that campus policy requires you set a forwarding address for your email if you do not routinely use your SF State email account.
