Two Tennessee Public Libraries Acquire Bibliotheca Security Gates

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – May 19, 2010 – Bibliotheca Inc., open RFID solutions partner of choice to 580+ libraries worldwide, announced that two Tennessee libraries, Sevier County Public Library System and Clarksville- Montgomery County Public Library, have selected and recently installed Bibliotheca security gate solutions for their facilities. The company's aesthetically pleasing BiblioGate VI gates and innovative BiblioGate Tracker software are the heart of the investments made by the two libraries.

BiblioGate VI is a featured member of the Bibliotheca line of RFID security gates for libraries. BiblioGate VI gates offer an impressively high identification rate and powerful performance. Successful identification and safeguarding is independent of media type and alignment of the RFID chip while passing through the gates. Key to the efficiency of BiblioGate VI is its connection to the library's integrated library system and Bibliotheca's specially developed gate-tracker software.

The BiblioGate Tracker can be used to manage the media which triggered the alarm and release them for further processing. In addition to an acoustic and visual alarm at the gates, secured media are also identified and recorded. The Microsoft Windows messaging service can be used to send a notification to any computer. In addition, certain settings can also be made directly at the gate.

According to K.C. Williams, Director of Sevier County Public Library System, "We had heard many great things about the Swiss-based company Bibliotheca, not only about their attractive products and how reliable they are but also how well their project management team works hard up front to ensure smooth day-to-day operations."

Now, Sevier County Public Library System is outfitting its new three-story, 40,000 square-foot King Family Library facility with Bibliotheca RFID solutions, with security gates and RFID tags during the first phase of implementation.

"At first, we were indecisive about what vendor to choose for our RFID security," said Martha Hendricks, Assistant Director of Clarksville-Montgomery County Public Library. "When we visited Poplar Bluff Public Library, we were not only very pleased with the transparent, unobtrusive appearance of Bibliotheca's BiblioGates, but were most impressed with the GateTracker software's ability to connect with our TLC integrated library system via SIP2 and call up the titles of unchecked media. Being able to inform customers which titles were incorrectly checked out saves time – and potential embarrassment – in searching through potentially dozens of media."

Clarksville-Montgomery has replaced its existing EM security gates with two sets of BiblioGate VI dual-aisle RFID security gates.
