Library Self-Service

Used correctly, self-service machines, kiosks, desks and returns bins can offer librarians peace of mind while extending the operating hours of the library.

Our Blade, Edge and eRLS CircDesk self-service solutions can help you provide a modern library experience to visitors while automating and streamlining processes to create a seamless journey from ‘shelf to self’.

eRLS Edge Self-Service

Automation and self-service make it quicker and easier to access resources without having to seek assistance from busy library staff. Our new self-service solutions:

  • Facilitate extended opening hours
  • Reduce workload on staff
  • Integrate with all library management systems

The new wall-mounted eRLS Edge (powered by RFID technology) is a cost-effective and attractive alternative to larger kiosks. We have integrated the self-service components into a slimline design that will fix to any wall, pillar or the end panel of a shelving bay. Each unit can be individually customised with the customer’s logo and includes multi-coloured backlit LEDs.

The eRLS CircDesk is a brand new self-service option that we’re pleased to be able to offer to our library customers.

If our EdgeBlade or OEM units do not meet your needs in terms of configuration or budget then CircDesk might be the answer you’re looking for.

eRLS CircDesk is a cost-effective option and can easily blend in with the library layout and aesthetic, giving you more flexibility as to where it can be placed. It’s a simple solution but comes with all the benefits of our other RFID-powered self-service systems, especially when used in conjunction with our Smart Returns bin.

Smart Returns Book Drop

Our new Smart eRLS Returns Bin is an intelligent, RFID-powered book-drop returns system where items are dropped into a secure book bin and checked back in (returned) automatically.
