Engaging with pupils, teaching them new skills and encouraging them to grow and succeed is at the top of the priority list for librarians and teachers in schools. Therefore, it must be very frustrating when everyday tasks like counting, labelling and checking out books take up valuable time, especially during busy exam periods when the library is at capacity.
D-Tech has created a solution to help librarians perform simple but time-consuming tasks, like checking out books, quickly and efficiently. The processIT™ is a small, durable and stylish workstation that allows you to issue, return and renew single or multiple items when required. It also provides users with the ability to programme stock during the RFID tagging process using the label conversion software. It works with D-Tech’s complete range of RFID labels as well as items tagged with approved labels from book suppliers.
The ‘staff pad’ as we call it, is ideal for busy workspaces and high- traffic areas of the library. The pad can be mounted on a desktop or stored underneath, to be used at the staff’s convenience. For large university libraries, there can be a number of staff pads stored in different locations, making multiple check-out points available to students so they will not have to travel far to check-out a book and can quickly continue with their studies. For even superior efficiency and greater time-saving, D-techs self-service systems will allow students to easily complete the check-out and return process on their own. The modern design with user-friendly touch-screen controls and instructions gives students complete control over their library experience.
With additional free time to perform more important library initiatives, like study clubs and development support activities, librarians and teachers will be able to put their skills and knowledge to good use for our future generation.
