Forward your student mail!

Here’s a tip for you who easily forget to keep track of your student mail: Be sure to forward it – in this blog post we explain how you do it!

The University Library, but also other parts of the University, often use your student mail to send information to you. From the University Library you’ll get reminders, messages that your requested books are waiting for you, or claims (if you have delayed books). Are you having trouble reminding to check your student mail? Then why don’t you forward it to your regular mail?

Here’s how you do it (you can click on the images to make them easier to read):

1. Log in to your student mail – mail.student.hb.se (use your S-number and password to log in).
2. Click the little gear on the right side of the window.
3. Choose Settings – Forwarding and POP/IMAP. Then press the button Add a forwarding address.4. Enter the e-mail address you want to forward your student mail to and press Next.
5. Make sure you have typed your e-mail address correct, then press Proceed.

Do you have the right e-mail registered?

Given that you get late fees on books you return too late, it seems like a good idea to keep track of what email address the library is using to send out reminders – here’s how you find out what address the library has registered for you.

When you have borrowed a book at the library, it is always your responsibility to keep track of what you borrowed and when it has to be returned. If a book is returned late, you will get a fee. To help you keep track of all different dates of return, the library has the service to send out reminder by email just before it is time to return a book. In order for you to receive the emails the library sends, and thus remind you that it is time to return the book, it is important that you have the correct e-mail address registered with the library. With the correct e-mail address we mean an email address that you check daily.

It is easy to check which email address is registered for you at the library. Log in to My Library, under the PERSONAL DATA tab you will see your e-mail address.

If you want to change email, you do it using Ladok under My Pages. Do you think it’s difficult? Come to the library and we will guide when you’re doing it.
