Innovative leader in expanded library services to share with librarians attending the ALA conference how its iLibrary system is used to economically offer patrons 24/7 access to library materials.
AUBURN HILLS, MI – JUNE 8, 2016 – LEID Products, LLC, the leader of electronic locker and cabinet storage with biometric asset protection and control, today announced it will exhibit at the 2016 American Libraries Association Annual Conference, taking place June 23 – 28 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. The iLibrary System is a cost effective solution that provides library services without the cost and burden of traditional brick and mortar library locations or book mobiles. LEID Products will showcase its iLibrary System in booth 1060.
The oldest and largest library association in the world The American Library Association, holds its Annual Conference & Exhibition each summer. As libraries continue to transform to meet society’s changing needs, the conference offers a collaborative environment for librarians to learn how to be more effective, save money, and better serve patrons.
LEID Products iLibrary System is an economical solution empowering libraries to meet convenience needs by offering self-service, around-the-clock, express library locations. The iLibrary System is made up of LEID’s tamperproof Electronic Modular Access Units and a web-enabled iLibrary Kiosk. Patrons browse and order materials online or directly through the iLibrary Kiosk. The patron will receive notification of delivery and can pick up materials from the system’s electronic lockers at any time by swiping their library card and/or entering a code into the keypad.
Many iLibrary Systems are set up either outside the library branch to extend hours, or in remote locations that are convenient to the community, such as commuter rail stations, grocery stores, or community centers. The iLibrary self-service solution is an innovative and affordable option to provide library access where demand is insufficient to support a traditional ‘brick and mortar’ library.
Earlier this year, the iLibrary System was recognized in the 2016 Modern Library Awards as an elite product which can help library management personnel enhance the quality-of-experience for the library user and increase the performance of their library systems.
“The iLibrary System is field proven to enhance patron access, with installations from New Jersey to California and from Michigan to Texas,” said John Kormanik, LEID Products senior account manager. “Most of the communities that have implemented this system have placed orders for additional systems based on patron’s positive response, and the low cost of acquisition and ownership for the library.”
