Books, CD’s, DVDs and other Collection Items dispensed via remote Kiosk Solution
The QUANTUM LIB-CABINET is a Small but Fully Integrated SATELLITE LIBRARY KIOSK
Located conveniently for library members and accessible using their library card. The Lib-Cabinet can operate at all hours and is constantly re-stocked as books previously borrowed are returned.
Library members can view the available collection titles through the cabinet door, swipe their membership card to open the door and take the items they want. The door closes automatically and a confirmation docket is then printed detaling the items borrowed.
The system works in reverse when items are returned and a returns receipt is issued.
The Lib-Cabinet is linked to the central library’s RFID book management system and all book withdrawals and returns recorded against the library card used. This means there is minimal staff involvement, except in the decisions made regarding the collections displayed and the number of copies of popular books stocked.
