For thirty years you’ve been the head librarian of your home town’s local, children’s library. Over these past three decades you’ve helped instill the importance of education and reading into the minds of thousands of your neighbors’ children. Steadily increasing your overall volume of books, year after year, it’s become quite difficult with such a limited staff to keep track of everything on the shelves and out on loan. With a new grant recently issued to the library, you’ve been contemplating fully automating the entire collection using library automation service.
Does this story sound similar to your own circumstances, or to someone Else’s you may know?
First off, a fully automated catalogue will give your clients a better understanding and faster access to the library’s collection. Instead of having to search, card by card, for a certain book, readers will now be able to quickly check a digitized listing with ease. Simply by typing in the title of the piece they are looking for, library goers will know within seconds if you carry what they want, and whether or not it is currently out on loan. Library automation service means more than just simply scanning your library’s books into your new digital archive system or copying them onto compact discs or DVD’s and hiring it out to your patrons. Library automation service provide a complete framework for automating your library such that every activity with respect to your collection is digitized, recorded and saved making it electronically retrievable.
Secondly, an automated system also allows you and your staff to easily keep tabs on all of the books. Instead of freehand writing out slips that can end up lost, you’ll now have an automatic listing of every client, what books they have out on loan, and how much longer they have to return them.
