Self Check service, which allows library users to charge out library materials without taking them to the circulation desk, arrived at the Trecker Library in October. All five regional campus libraries now have Self Check (workstation shown below) in a version slightly different than the one in use at the main campus in Storrs.
A Husky One Card (the UConn ID) is needed for the process to work.
Self Check is one of many initiatives designed to take the “middleman” out of your library experience. Other efforts include technical advances in the way materials are requested for interlibrary lending (which once required a trip to the library and can now be done on the internet) and the increasing digitization of our journals and other collections.
