View or update your email

If you provided your email address on your library card application, you should automatically receive email notifications about available holds and upcoming due dates. 

To confirm we have your email and update it if needed:

  1. Go to My APL: My Settings and log in. If you have never logged in, learn how to register with the catalog.

    Screenshot of Log In/My APL menu at the top right hand corner of the catalog, with a help link before. Select My Settings in the menu.
  2. From here you can click on Email Address from the menu on the left-hand side of the page:

Account emails

To ensure account emails go to your inbox rather than a spam or junk folder, we recommend you add the library notification email address to your email Contacts: sirsi@aupl.sirsi.net.


Notification emails are a courtesy; we are not responsible for misdirected or missing emails. The status of holds and due dates can also be checked anytime in your My APL account or by calling Customer Service at 512-974-7475.
