Innovative Solutions for Library Systems

With libraries stock more diverse than ever, across both physical collections and online formats, managing, cataloguing and lending material safely and securely has never seemed so complicated. Fortunately innovative companies like Dialoc ID Library now offer fully integrated, wholesale solutions across all aspects of library management.

 

Sorting and Cataloguing: managing lending and returns

Once a lender returns a book to the library, that books journey is not yet complete, as the book then needs to be sorted and returned to its original place for the next lender. Manually sorting returns can be a time-consuming process, fortunately Dialoc ID Library’s solution is an automated library materials system that automatically sorts books with noiseless electric equipment from single or multiple return points.

 

Staff and Self-Service: making libraries simpler

Realising the importance of self-service capability in today’s libraries, Dialoc Id Library provides a wealth of options, from devices to software, to give libraries the flexibility they need, and users a simple and easy to use lending experience. The flexibility of Dialoc’s self-service devices is built in at the hardware level in their modular structure, allowing the machines to adapt to new identification systems down the road, whilst on the software side, the user experience is customisable to suit the house style of the institution that is using them, with layouts, fonts and colours all available to customise. No matter the makeup of your library solution, self-service solutions will adapt to it.

 

Securing Library Systems: the latest technology

All libraries have of deal with the accidental or deliberate removal of unscanned stock, and adopt security measures to prevent this. With simple alarmed systems equipped with audio and visual alarms, and the latest in EM and RFID technology, security systems from Dialoc promise simple but effective security operations, with additional features like people-counting allowing security systems to serve a secondary management purpose contributing productively to the library system.
