You may have noticed some emails from MRU Library in your inbox lately. The Library is making the switch from paper to email notices for overdue material and fine-related information. And we’re also sending a friendly little reminder before your books are due. Our new initiative is intended to reduce our environmental impact and get you the information you need in a more timely fashion. We hope it may also save you a dollar or two!
