Starting 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:
- Download the meeScan app via the App Store or Google Play. Once downloaded ensure that meeScan can access your camera and send notifications.
- 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’
- Enter in your 14 digit library barcode (starts with 22212…) on your UM ID card and ‘Start’
- 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).
