Q. How do I know when my books are due back?
Colchester, Loughton : The self-service machines will send you an email receipt with the due date on. You can also check the return date on these machines by tapping your registration card on the contactless point and selecting " my account", you will then see a list of your books and the date they are due back.
You can check your account on our website, click "My Account" in the top left-hand corner of the homepage, select the campus you attend. You will then need to login with your Essex username and password. You can also renew your books from here.
Staff at the library Helpdesk will be happy to help if you need assistance.
Southend: If you choose to print a receipt when you borrow a book at the self-service machine it details the date it is due back. Or you can check you account online. Click on my account and enter your library barcode which is your PRID followed by 001 (it may also be on the back of your student card) and PIN number (this could be your date of birth in 6 digit format: DDMMYY). Alternatively, you can go a self-service machine on the ground / 1st floor and check your account details by scanning your card and entering your PIN.
