Bibliotheca Introduces New Hybrid Security and Self-Check Solutions
Bibliotheca RFID Library Systems (www.bibliotheca-rfid.com), an open RFID (radio frequency identification) solutions provider, has introduced new BiblioHybrid solutions for security and patron self-service. BiblioHybrid solutions, with BiblioChip RFID technology, work seamlessly with current electromagnetic (EM) bar code and RFID systems to make the transition to RFID as easy and affordable as possible, while integrating tightly with ILS systems to enhance efficiency for library staff. BiblioHybrid solutions also offer sleek, user-friendly designs that library management and patrons will find visually appealing. BiblioHybrid security and self-check solutions are immediately available for order by libraries in North America and around the globe.
BiblioGate Hybrid security gates not only trigger acoustic and visual signals when patrons attempt to exit without properly checking out materials, but they simultaneously detect library materials fitted with electromagnetic (EM) bar codes and RFID. The new BiblioGate Hybrid is designed to offer the perfect solution for libraries in the process of transitioning to RFID but need a security gate that will, in the meantime, safeguard their mixed-media collections.
Bibliotheca’s new Biblio SelfCheck Hybrid solution supports patron self-service for checking materials out and in, paying fines, extending due dates, and more for library collections that include materials fitted with both electromagnetic strips and RFID chips.
Bibliotheca, Inc. has global headquarters in Switzerland and operations in the Americas and Asia-Pacific.
