New self-service machines in The Sir Duncan Rice Library

We have installed new, more user-friendly self-service kiosks on Floors 1, 4, 6 and on the Ground Floor of The Sir Duncan Rice Library. The older kiosks on Floors 3, 5 and 7 have been removed.

Users can borrow, check their borrower record and renew items on loan, using the self-service machines on the Ground Floor and on Floors 1, 4 & 6.




To issue a book:

  • select “Borrow”
  • simply scan your ID card on the reader (place it under the red beam)
  • type in your PIN. If you don’t have a PIN, ask staff to register one for you
  • place the book on the shelf (the message: “place your items on the shelf below” will be displayed on the screen)
  • select method for obtaining receipt (print or email)

To return items on loan, use the self-service kiosks on Floor 1 (Heavy Demand area) or the Returns Room, located on the Ground Floor of The Sir Duncan Rice Library. There is also an external book drop slot where you can return items when the Library is closed.
