The Danish Kolding Public Library has chosen Bibliotheca A/S as their new RFID provider for its main library. After a successful installation of the BiblioChip System at three branches in 2006, the management of Kolding Public Library decided to change their present supplier and implement Bibliotheca's solution even at the main library and the last branch. Finally in October 2007, a comprehensive RFID solution from Bibliotheca with Biblio SelfCheck Stations and StaffStations will be installed in the main building.

"The BiblioChip System provides several important features to make the daily use easy and comfortable. The Bibliotheca team developed an implementation plan for the installation which perfectly works without any inconveniences for our patrons. Furthermore, the system integration and interface to our LMS was implemented without any problems", explains Mia Bastrup, Kolding Library's IT-manager. "Bibliotheca was the only RFID provider on the market who was able to serve the library with these specific services and product features."

The library will use the BiblioChip Complete Solution to increase the media security. "These labels are convincing in performing a reliable check out and the best detection in the gate", continues Mrs. Bastrup.

Henrik S. Jensen, Bibliotheca's CEO, comments: "We are honored that Kolding Library chose us for their new state-of-the-art library. For us, this is another affirmation that we develop custom designed RFID systems. We work in close cooperation with the libraries and do respect their specific needs."

Kolding Main Library is a library that supports openness, adventure and learning. Through architecture and interior decorating the library has created a space full of light and transparency, which generates clarity. With more than 350.000 items the library is very popular among the users. The digital resources are integrated with the physical items. The interior is based upon self-check and assistance to self-help. RFID is used as a general technical platform.

Bibliotheca RFID Library Systems AG, headquartered in Cham/Switzerland, is Europe's leading RFID Library System provider.
