Quick Check Machine
The self service machine allows you to borrow, return and renew your books. You can also check your account and print a list of the books you have on loan.
You need a special QuickCheck PIN in order to use the quick check self service machine. To create this pin reset it here ( you will have to login using your college login) by inputting your college email address. (small s) you will get an email with a link (expires after 2 days) which you click on and you will then be prompted to change your pin. If you have any problems please ask a library staff member at the information desk.
