Smart Lockers

NOTICE: New ID cards may not work with the Smart Locker. Please contact Circulation to ensure your account has been updated before you pick up your items.

Request your library books online and retrieve them from the UWinnipeg Library Smart Lockers. Please wait until you receive an email notification indicating your hold is ready; books will not be ready for pickup before the notification is sent.

You will need to either have your library card (UWinnipeg ID card) or know your barcode number to pick up your items. See Student Central for information on how to quickly and easily obtain your ID card.
