Morgantown Public Library to upgrade collection to RFID with award-winning Tech Logic CircTRAK

Tech Logic is pleased to partner with the Morgantown Public Library branch of the Morgantown Public Library System, serving Monongalia County, WVa., during the conversion of its collection to RFID. Morgantown has purchased RFID tags, tagging and staff station equipment, RFID security gates and the platinum award-winning CircTRAK shelf management system, which locates materials shown in the catalog as lost, missing, trace, claimed returned, and more. The library's goals for this conversion are to improve staff efficiencies and improve shelf management and security. In the future the library plans to offer streamlined RFID patron self-checkout.

Morgantown is a member of the Northern Library Network, a consortium of seventeen West Virginia county library systems encompassing 45 libraries. Tech Logic has assisted other West Virginia libraries with RFID conversions in Clarksburg/Harrison County, Bridgeport Public and Marion County Public. Morgantown cited Tech Logic's willingness to tailor solutions to meet their library's needs and the company's unique approach to RFID shelf management as key to their purchasing decision.
