bibliotheca3m_logoBibliotheca is dedicated to the development of solutions that help libraries connect with users in unique ways and provide engaging experiences, allowing them to continually evolve their library services for the changing needs of their communities. Our products are designed to provide a welcoming, intuitive and seamless environment for those that use the library – wherever they choose to use it – be that at home, on the move or within the library itself. With over 30,000 libraries as part of our family, we have installed and continue to support more than 10,000 self-service units, 6,000 security systems and 650 automated materials handling (sorter) systems. In addition, our digital platform powers eBook and eAudiobook lending at over 3,000 libraries. We help libraries promote events, services and additional titles in a more convenient and intuitive way for today’s library user, both at the library and beyond. Through continuous innovation, we focus on solutions that empower libraries to reinvent their offering and provide the best customer experience. We are dedicated to helping transform libraries in the digital age into indispensable, equitable community hubs that inspire creativity, collaboration and life-long learning.

Suffolk Libraries – Dootrix

A cost-effective self-service system built by a library service, for library services.

Suffolk Libraries have developed their own self-service app that allows library users to check in and out books, quickly and easily, for a fraction of the cost of existing kiosk systems. Developed with technology partners Dootrix, the team designed and built a progressive web app that can not only run on any tablet or touchscreen PC, but also syncs easily with Library Management Systems, with an impressive offline functionality to ensure transactions and data are kept secure, even with a loss of connectivity.  The self-service system is now running in forty-four libraries, and three pop-up libraries across the county, with library users praising the system’s speed and simplicity, as well as the intuitive and easy to use interface – allowing them to see their account, what books they’ve borrowed and if they owe anything.

The Suffolk and Dootrix team will be showcasing the system at the Edge conference, and are looking to make the all-in-one solution available to other libraries, so please do come and find Leon or Andy for a demonstration. [more information]

Words from an exhibitor -It is always a pleasure to attend the EDGE conferences. It is hard to put into words why EDGE is so different – it is a combination of the presenters/presentations, the group of delegates that you bring together and the atmosphere that is created. There is always an energy to the conference that I really don’t see anywhere else. In spite of challenging budgetary positions, the people attending EDGE seem to be bouncing and upbeat about libraries and their future which is so refreshing. We also made some great contacts with prospective customers.
