1. Download and install the MeeScan app from the Apple or Android/Google app store. You can either search meeScan or click one of the icons above while using your phone or tablet.  During setup you will have to give the app the following permissions:

  • Allow the app to send you notifications.
  • Allow the app to access your camera in order to scan barcodes on books.
  • Allow the app to access your location so that it can automatically connect to the library that you are using.

2. On launching the app it may ask you to confirm which campus you are on

3. You can then login by clicking on the green "Start" button and type in your Rambler ID number.

4. Once logged in, click on the "+" sign to start scanning items.

6. Scan the barcode of the item you wish to borrow.

7. If you are borrowing more than one item, select the 'scan multiple items' option before you begin. 

8. Once you've finished scanning, click 'Finish' to complete the process. You will then receive an email receipt confirming the titles and due dates of the books. 

Please note: the library has security systems in place. The app will ask you to deactivate the books at a security unit before leaving the library. Please use one of the meeScan stations to deactivate. The app will confirm once the security has been deactivated. Please speak to a member of library staff if you need any assistance the first time and we will be glad to help. 

Using Library Kiosk

  • Press the green START button on the kiosk screen.
  • Swipe your Rambler card, with magnetic strip facing to the right.
