From Monday 8 November you can ask for your book to be delivered to MIRC when you reserve it on Library Search. You can then pick it up from the new remote locker using your University ID card.
We are hoping that this new service will make it easier for School of Management staff and students to access the books they need without walking down to the Kings Norton Library. (You are still welcome to do that if you would like to browse the collection though!).
All you need to do is select MIRC as your Pickup library when you are placing a reservation:
We will then send you an email to let you know when your item is ready for collection. Once you have received it, just head to the remote locker in MIRC. Simply follow the instructions on screen, scan your ID card and the screen will list your available book(s). Select which you want to collect or tap “Select All”, then tap “Open Locker”. The door will ping open with the book(s) already issued. You can print a receipt if you would like one, or get it emailed to you. And while you’re there, you can also review your account and renew your loans.
When you have finished with your loan, simply take it back to the locker, tap the option to “Return” and follow the instructions on screen again. The returns bin will light up to show you where to post the book, and will lock again when you tap “Finished”. You may also return your books at Kings Norton Library if you wish.
Please do let us know if you have any problems using the locker and we will be happy to help you!
