Self-Check out is back!

Self-checkout machines are a bit of an anomaly at the University of Virginia Libraries. The self-checkout here at FAL started as an experiment, which is definitely not an anomaly around here, in fact it’s encouraged! So, we set out to DIY a self-checkout that would be reliable and make the desk more efficient. It was created with open source software and off the shelf components. Thanks, computer nerds!!

If you haven’t had a chance to use it yet, please come by the Fine Arts Library and try it out for yourself!

Just a little fun....
