    • These emails are from our friendly Ask Us librarians, letting you know about several important details like holds, Grab-to-Go, late notices —but you’d never get those— and more.

No immediate action is needed from you at this time; however, if you see emails from these addresses in your junk/spam folder, make sure to let your email client know they aren’t spam by saving them as contacts or clicking the appropriate “not junk” style notification button on the emails we send. 

We’ll keep you updated on any future email address changes as part of the University of Colorado Denver’s enhanced email security measures
