Check-Out & Go!

Student at self checkout station
Love Library has just installed a new self check-out station at the Love South Circulation desk. It is easy to use with a touch screen monitor and easy to follow instructions. All you need is your UNL ID and some books.
Other things the self check-out station allows you to do:
• view your fines
• renews any items you have already checked out
So skip the long line at the circulation desk and check out your own books!

Password Implementation, May 13

Starting on May 13, when logging into your library account or a UNL Libraries database, you will need to establish a password. You will be asked to enter it again as verification. For security purposes, instead of seeing the actual numbers on the screen, you will see asterisks or bullets displayed as the password is entered.
This password will protect your library card from unauthorized use and will be needed when you:
          · login to My Library.
          · login to use a database licensed for UNL.
          · check out items at a self-check out machine.
          · login to use a library computer.
