Benefits of using SelfLib

SIMPLE TO INSTALL, MAINTAIN AND USE

Easy setup means you are up and running in minutes

Setting up the software only takes minutes and the intuitive and simple design means it is easy to access and use. System updates are automated so there is no need to worry whether you are using the latest version.

FLEXIBLE AND SCALABLE

Place your self-issue points anywhere in the library

Your new self-issue points can be placed anywhere in the library near a power outlet and with a wireless internet connection. If you’re responsible for multiple libraries, it is easy to redistribute your self-issue points as and when your needs change.

LOW RISK

A future-proofed solution, built to adapt and change

As the demands placed on libraries change, having a self-issue solution that is more flexible and efficient exposes your library to less risk. Even in the long term, you can repurpose your hardware to make the most of your investment.

“If you’re realistic about what can be achieved, then they are in a position where they will listen to you and they will respond, and they will involve you and it feels to me like that is very much the way they are going. And I think that that’s an exceptionally positive move.”
