Located in front of the circulation desk at Alexander Library, the Self Checkout machine allows borrowers to check out their own books quickly and easily. Step-by-step instructions are displayed on an easy-to-use touch screen.
Self Checkout will:
- Verify your privileges.
- Check out and renew books and periodicals that circulate.
- Desensitize items.
- Print date due slips.
