Library Self-Checkout System Shrinks

Library Automation Technologies has released what it's calling "the world's smallest self-check for libraries." FlashScan-MAXine measures 33" x 22" x 22" and allows libraries to let patrons check out their own materials. It's wireless, which makes it portable and can be upgraded for RFID; plus it supports front-gate security.

The system houses an interactive touch-screen display to simplify usage and allows the library to use multiple languages and customize the color set to match the library's decor. The unit includes LAT-Central Enterprise Management Software, which lets librarians have remote control of the system and provides reporting and management capabilities.
