About us pages for Winchester School of Art Library.
If you carry on walking past the Welcome Desk, you will come to our 'holds shelf'.
Books requested through WebCat ('click and collect') will be left on the 'holds shelf'. The books on this shelf have not been issued - you will need to issue them using the self-service machine.
We will email you when your books are ready to collect.
Our self-service machine is next to the 'holds shelf'. If you have selected books to borrow, please issue them using this machine. You will need to have your student / staff card with you.
If you have any problems using the machine, please ask a member of staff to help you.
Next to the machine is a box of antibacterial surface wipes. Please use these before and after using the touch-screen, and place used wipes in the bin provided.
