Self checkout

At the self-check-out you can check out textbooks with shelfmarks starting with 17/ and language textbooks with shelfmarks starting 1710/ at the check-out machine.

All returns must still be processed at the lending station.


You can check out books yourself at the check-out machine in the textbook collection (and in the reading room Medicine). You will need your user card, which you place under the scanner. You are then guided by the system.

Batch check-out is possible, which means that you can place up to five books on the scanner at the same time, depending on the size of the books. Please make sure that all the books you intend to borrow are displayed correctly on the screen in green letters.

We recommend that no more than three titles are scanned simultaneously.
