SelfLib is a simple self-issue web-app that will run on any tablet or PC. With SelfLib, libraries can offer patrons a simple check-in/check-out functionality from anywhere in the library, including viewing and renewing loans and emailing receipts.
SelfLib also offers the option of contactless payments of fines and charges.
Simple to install,
maintain & use
Setting up the software takes minutes and anyone can do it, and because updates happen automatically you never need to worry that you don’t have the latest version. The software is simple and intuitive so anyone can use it, even first-time users will know what to do.
Your new self-issue points can be placed anywhere in the library near a power outlet and with a wireless internet connection. If you’re responsible for multiple libraries it’s simple and easy to redistribute your self-issue points as and when your needs change.
As the demands placed on libraries constantly change, having a self-issue solution that is more flexible & efficient exposes your library to less risk should circumstances change. Even in the long term, you can re-purpose your hardware to make the most out of your investment.
