Self Checkout of Books Now Available at NJM

meescan logoStarting August 29, 2016 UM Library patrons can now check out books from anywhere within Dafoe Library or Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library using meeScan – a mobile app  that lets you check out books using your mobile device.

Steps to Checkout Books Using meeScan:

  1. Download the meeScan app via the App Store or Google Play. Once downloaded ensure that meeScan can access your camera and send notifications.
  2. Activate meeScan app by touching ‘Start’ after opening the app; press the camera icon to scan the activation code barcode below or typing in 12463145, and select ‘Activate’ (allow meeScan to access your location) and ‘Start’ meescan
  3. Enter in your 14 digit library barcode (starts with 22212…) on your UM ID card and ‘Start’
  4. You are now able to check out books! Press the ‘+’ sign to start checking out books!

Please note: Once books are checked out using meeScan you MUST still demagnetize the book at the deactivation station (located beside the printer near the circulation desk at the NJM Library).
