    How can I let patrons use Self-Check for In-Library Use only items but leave the RFID tag activated?

    • Product: Alma


    We have course or technology reserves that patrons can check out for In-Library Use only. How do we let them use the Self-Check machine(s) while leaving the RFID tag activated?


    It is possible to tell the self-check machine not to de-magnetize an item by doing the following:

    1. Go to the Item Record.

    2. Select 'Yes' for the field "Is magnetic." 

    3. Click Save.
