Elf is a web-based and email tool for library users to keep track of their library
borrowings. Elf is like a personal assistant, whose task is to help with keeping
track of what one has on loan from the library.
Designed with the busy or avid library user in mind, Elf is ideal for families with
multiple library cards or for individuals (writers, researchers, students, readers,
etc.) who have cards from different libraries.
Elf makes it easier to keep track of what's due, overdue or ready for pickup from
one or more library accounts. Users have the option to consolidate their library
accounts into one account if they wish. This account is checked everyday and email
notices are sent when items are coming due, overdue or when holds are ready for
pickup. As well, get up-to-date realtime information by browser.
Elf is supported through subscriptions
either by the library or, if the library does not subscribe, by the users. The basic reminder service is free.
Additional support is provided by Google and Amazon ads.
