There are three self checkout devices in the Library:

1st floor:

  • Across from the Library Services desk,
  • Course Reserves room.

2nd floor:

  • Beside the 2nd floor entrance.

Self checkout instructions:

  1. Scan the back of your UNBC ID card under the blue screen.
  2. Place the item on the station as shown below to deactivate. Ensure the binding of the book is resting against the guide and the barcode is facing up to the scanner.

  1. Slide the item towards the barcode scanner. Keep sliding until the red scanning line crosses the barcode. You will hear a beep when the barcode is scanned, then wait.
  2. Leave the item in place and wait 3 seconds for deactivation. Wait for the green light and then the confirming “clunk.” Set aside item and scan the next item.
  3. Finish your transaction. After all items have been deactivated, you will see the “FINISH” button on the screen to the right. Tap it to end the transaction.
