Self Checkout at Alberta Law Libraries

Alberta Law Libraries is pleased to provide self checkout services.

There are two ways to access the self checkout service. The first is through the self checkout kiosks (one in Calgary and one in Edmonton). The second way is by downloading the app onto your Apple or Android device, to use at any of our library locations.

Get the meeScan app via the App Store or Google Play.
