How do I borrow books?

You'll need a Teesside University Smart Card (TUSC) if you haven't already got one. This card will contain your unique User name which allows you to borrow material and use our self services. You also need it to use the self-service printing system in the Library and to access some University buildings across both campuses.

You need to use the Self Service stations in the Library at both campuses and follow the on-screen instructions.

You will need your TUSC and PIN. If you do not have a PIN you can set up your own by visiting URL https://mylogin.tees.ac.uk/mylogin.

Please ask a member of staff if you would like any help.
