The library will notify you when your requests (holds) are ready to be picked up and when you have overdue items.  You can choose the notification method.

Email notification

If you select email notification, you will automatically be emailed:
•  as soon as items you have requested are ready to be picked up (holds notice)
•  several days in advance of items you have borrowed becoming overdue (preoverdue notice)
•  when items you have borrowed are overdue (overdue notice)

This is the quickest method of receiving notifications.  It also has the advantage of offering a 'preoverdue' notice.
