Using our self-issue machines

Use your campus card to issue books to your account quickly and easily. Simply scan or tap your card and then scan the barcode on the front of the book. You'll be issued with a printed receipt that shows when the items need to be returned. Our self-issue machines are available whenever the building is open.

At the helpdesk

If you've forgotten your campus card, bring the books you wish to borrow to one of our helpdesks during staffed hours. We'll ask for a different form of ID or you may be asked a few questions in order to verify your details.
