Important Message to Students about your Email Address and Library Notices!!!

What You Won't Care About:  Student records are uploaded weekly from the registrar’s database into the library circulation system database.

What You Will Care About:  This upload overwrites the @law.arizona.edu address everyone here has with the generic University of Arizona email address into your record. If you never look at what’s in this mailbox you will miss overdue notices, recall notices, etc., sent to you by the library system. You Will Be Fined by the Main Library for Overdue Books.

What You Have to Do:  Go into the generic address through WEB MAIL on the main U of A page and forward your mail to the address you monitor. Do this under the “Mail Rules” tab. NB: Your “NET ID” is your last name.
