Using the Check-out function

While in the library, you can use the app to check-out any item that has an RFID tag. An RFID tag is a small square tag located inside the back cover of a book. You can scan the tag and it will automatically be added to your account as a borrowed item.

On the app’s home page, locate and press on “Self-Serve”. This will bring you to the Check-Out page. Press the green  rectangle to bring you to the “Ready to Scan” page. Place your device over the square RFID tag in the item you want to borrow and press where it says RFID on your screen. The app will confirm your check-out. You can then scan another item or press finish.
