1. Locate the patron account in the left-hand “Scan patron card” panel via one of the following methods:
Swiping a Buff OneCard, Public Patron Card, or Visiting Scholar Card
Enter an IdentiKey
Click the Patron Look-up link
In the Select User window search box enter part or all of the patron’s name, email, or username (Identikey) and apply any useful filters.
Click search and then select the correct patron.
2. Scan or enter the item in the right-hand “Scan Items” panel:
To check the item out, scan the barcode or manually enter the barcode number and click enter.
A pop-up may appear for items with multiple pieces. Check all pieces are present.
Click Item Details for additional details (number of items, inserts, etc.)
The checked out item will display below. Provide the patron with the due date and time.
Continue checking out any additional items for the patron or click “End Session.” All applicable notices will be sent to the patron.
*Receipts are automatically emailed to the patron.
When an item is not checked in properly and we scan it for another check out, a pop-up will state that the item is already checked out. (FOLIO does not automatically check-in nor backdate the item for you.)
Search the item barcode in the Circulation log App and locate the last check out.
Click the ellipses, and select Loan details.
If fines are listed, write down the due date and time, then follow the backdating process in the Check-in app.
If no fines are listed, perform the normal Checking In process.
