- Press the “Start” button.
- Wipe your Bearcat Card in the card reader on the right side of the unit.
- Open the rear cover of the book and hold it under the unit so the red laser beam crosses the barcode.
- Repeat step 3 for each book.
The system will send you an email message confirming the transaction.
You can also use your iOS or Android device to check out books. Go to the App Store or Google Play and search for “UC Self-Checkout.” The app will use your device’s camera to scan the barcode. You will need to manually enter your patron ID the first time that you use the app; that ID is your M number, which is visible on your Bearcat Card. Happy reading!
