Circulation Instructions

Using the system to check-in and check-out books

You must check-in and check-out books using the Circulation Station (ipad) assigned to the library. The station should be set to https://lambpcs.goalexandria.com/selfservice# but may prompt you to sign you in.

If so, tap on the Username box (1) and scan the barcode at the TOP of the circulation stand, then tap on the Password box (2) and scan the barcode at the BOTTOM of the circulation stand.

The station may already be set for you to click on Check Out or Check In.  If you want both, check in books before checking out more.  There is a maximum limit of 5 books per student that can be checked out at one time.

To Check In books

Tap on the Check In button.

The cursor should appear in the top line when the following window appears. If not, simply tap on the top line and then scan your item.

Scan the item you are checking in and the related barcode number will appear. If you have trouble with the scanner, you can type the barcode number. Double press the small circular button on the scanner to bring up the on-screen keyboard and tap the return (2) key.

You will see the book listed in the bottom window and you can continue to scan more books to check in until they are all listed. When they are all listed, you can click on “Done”.

Congratulations, you have successfully checked in books!
