Edmonton, AB – March 2010 – Libramation, a leader in providing library automation equipment and RFID technology, announced the introduction of the BookBank.
"Many libraries are looking for ways to increase staff duty efficiency by cutting down the handling of heavy circulation items," said Frank Mussche, Libramation's President. "The BookBank, a kiosk style and fully automated book lending unit provides an ideal solution." To check out a book, patrons scan their patron card and make their selection. A lift inside the unit moves to pick up the book and then gently delivers it to the delivery door near the bottom of the BookBank.
The BookBank is connected to the library’s ILS via SIP2 protocol which means all checkout transactions and Patron Status are updated in real time with the ILS. There are two models to choice from with either 4 shelves or 5 shelves; these are scalable from 120 to 200 items.
