When borrowing books, you should use the self-check machines. There are machines on all floors of the Library. You must always have your ID card with you to use the machines.
There are easy to follow instructions on the screen. On occasions you may be directed to go to staff at the Customer Services Desk. For instance, if you have a large fine, you will be stopped from further borrowing. Also you will not be able to use the self-check machines if you have overdue books or if you have your full quota of books.
