The self-check unit is a self-service library terminal that allows students, employees and other UCF Library patrons to check out books, VHS tapes and other general collection items themselves, rather than having to stand in line so a library employee can check out the materials for them.
The self-service unit is located across from the Circulation Desk, just at the entrance to Infusion, the Library’s coffee shop. The terminal has the ability to print or e-mail a receipt. Receipts for materials checked out include due dates and identify if the patron has any library items on hold, overdue items or money due to the library.
The self-check terminal was acquired by the UCF Library to relieve congestion at the Circulation Desk and to allow patrons the option of checking out materials themselves as a matter of convenience or privacy.
