After locating the library item you need on shelf, you can take the item and borrow it using one of our self-service machines which are located on the ground, 1st and 2nd floors in the library.
To check your account, renew books, or pay a charge, simply scan your card on the card reader and click 'Account' and then select the relevant option. Please note that self-service machines only accept payment with credit/debit cards and payments can only be made on the Ground floor self-service machines.
