Busitema University's Online Public Access Catalog offers a self-checkout feature that enables users to independently borrow library materials. To utilize this service, users should access the catalog through libcat.busitema.ac.ug. The users needs to log in using their library credentials, which could be their student ID or a unique username and password. Once logged in, users can locate the items they wish to borrow within the catalog. This is done by searching for specific titles, authors, or keywords. Once the desired items are located, users the go ahead to select them and follow the prompts to initiate the self-checkout process. This process involves confirming the chosen items, reviewing borrowing terms, and confirming the transaction. The system will then update the user's library account, indicating the borrowed items and their due dates.
