New Technologies @ Our Libraries
A backroom view of Automated Self-Check In at the newly remodeled Kent Library. Library materials are scanned and checked in immediately by the automatic “eyes” at the check in station, and then sorted into bins or carts, ready to shelve in the library. This system, affectionately known as AMH, helps library staff keep up with an ever-increasing workload.
DiscXpress checks out and dispenses DVDs at the Woodmont Library. The system, which is a pilot project for KCLS, was installed in December 2009. Discs are loaded into the towers by staff, and then automatically dispensed when patrons check them out.
