Sentry Technology Corporation announced today that the Calgary Public Library placed an order for an additional eight QuickCheck self-service kiosks.
This is the fourth order for QuickCheck(TM) systems by Calgary following a public tender process. When the installation of the latest order is complete the library will have twenty-two self-service systems in service.
QuickCheck operates in a similar fashion to a bank ATM. Patrons gain access to the library’s circulation software via a user card and touch screen video monitor. A barcode or RFID chip on the book is read, security functions performed and a receipt is printed to tell the patron what books have been borrowed and when they are due to be returned.
