This service is unavailable until further notice. Please visit the Collections Access page for more information on requesting and access to physical materials.

You can check out materials 24 hours a day and avoid lines at the Circulation desks by using the Self-check machines.

  • Self-checkout is available to current students or faculty members of NYU, New School, Cooper Union, NYSID, and patrons who otherwise have valid borrowing privileges (opens in a new window) at Bobst Library.

  • You must be in good standing with the library - meaning you should not have any blocks on your circulation record, or owe more than $5.00 in fines. You can pay fines at the Circulation & Reserves Service desk at Bobst Library.

  • To begin, scan the barcode printed on the back of your school ID card or library card. Then follow the prompts on the screen. You may also view your library account on the Self-check machines.
