Self checkout

Self checkout terminal

In these branch libraries, you borrow your media yourself at our terminals for self checkout:

  • LK Library (Duisburg campus)
  • Humanities and Social Sciences Library (Essen campus)
  • MNT Library (Essen campus)
  • Medical Library (Essen University Hospital).

To do so, you will need your user number/university ID and your PIN.

The operation is by menu and diagrams. First, the validity of the library card is established, then you can read in the books individually. They are automatically added to your account. You will also receive a receipt automatically by email.

In the LK, BA and MC Libraries (Duisburg campus) as well an in the Humanities and Social Sciences Library and MNT Library (Essen campus) you will find your reserved media (except journals and interlibrary loan orders) in a publicly accessible area. You can collect reserved media and books yourself and check out at the lending desks or - if available - at one of our self-service devices to avoid queue time.

In the Medical Library, you can collect reserved media at the lending desk.
