Modern Bibliotheca SelfCheck Station Is Put Up into Exploitation at the UNWE Library
Responding to user expectations the UNWE Library already provides a new innovative service - Bibliotheca SelfCheck Station. The UNWE library is the first one in Bulgarian capital and the third one in the country to have such a station.
The visitors in the Library can check out books they have borrowed or return books they have read in seconds. The station reads the inventory number of the book and sends a request to the automated library system which identifies the reader via his or her library card and gives a response to the machine that the reader can select two of the functions - borrow or return. Borrowed books are automatically recorded or checked out in the reading batch. No new books may be borrowed unless all previous books have been returned within the time limit regulated by the library. The new self-service technology makes borrowing and returning library items quick, easy and without the participation of librarian.
