Self-checkout machine

Library users can check out materials for themselves using the self-checkout machines at Webster and Vanier Libraries. The machines can be found in the Course Reserve rooms at both libraries and in other positions near the circulation desks. To use them, you must have your Concordia ID card, Alumni ID card or Library Privilege Card.

If you need help, follow the instructions on the self-checkout screen or see staff at the Loans & Returns Desk (Webster Library) or Circulation Desk (Vanier Library).

Certain items cannot be checked out at the machine, including:

  • Items which have been requested by another user
  • Reference materials (dictionaries, encyclopedias, etc.)
  • All journals, magazines, and newspapers
  • Media materials including microforms, videos, etc.
  • Equipment (e.g., laptops, tablets, Technology Sandbox items)

Please note that the Library Loans Policy and Policy on Overdue and Lost Material apply for transactions done through the self-checkout machine.
