Checking Out Materials

STEPS FOR CHECKING OUT BOOKS 

 
1)  Before checking out a book or materials, ALWAYS MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO DAMAGES!!
 
     If a book already has an “OUCH” label on it, continue to step 2.
     If there is no “OUCH” label, fill out a pink damaged slip.
 
2) ​MAKE SURE THE COMPUTER IS ON THE "CHECK OUT" MODULE.

​3) SCAN STUDENT'S GO-CARD.
 
    NO GO-CARD?  Ask to see the student’s computer print out of his/her schedule. 
    You can look up the student’s library account until new Go-Cards are distributed. 
  • IF THE COMPUTER BEEPS WHEN YOU SCAN THE GO-CARD or look up a borrower,
  • READ WHAT IS ON THE SCREEN!**
  • If a student has an overdue book, tell him / her what they have out & ask that they can not borrow any more materials until they have returned the overdue.
  • If any other message appears, call the teacher-librarian or ask the student to see the teacher-librarian later.
4) SCAN BARCODE FOR EACH ITEM 
     Books / PBs / Reference:  The barcode is on the top left-hand corner of the book.
     Videos:  It is either on the video case, or on the video itself  - inside the case.
 
5)  DE-SENSITIZE books.

6)  PUT A DATE DUE SLIP IN THE BOOK.     
      Remind the student to return or renew the item before the date due.
