UCR Library now has a self service machine which lets you check your books out, return them and renew them.  

To use the machine you must have your student card.

How to borrow items

  • Scan your card by holding it with the barcode facing up
  • Press the “Borrow” button on the screen 
  • Place the item(s) on top of the black shelf
  • Wait until the title(s) appear on the screen - it will also tell you when the item is due back - Please note some items are only 7 day loans
  • Press Finish:
    • “Print Receipt” to receive a printed receipt of your loans 
    • Or choose to have no receipt. 

The screen will then display how many items you have successfully borrowed  

You are all done and ready to go!
