Session Abstract

Libraries are constantly evolving and adopting new technologies. Just as in stores, bus stations, and other public places, patrons expect to be able to check out books using self-service kiosks. However, one of the challenges of introducing self-service kiosks in libraries is security.

We have developed a comprehensive solution for self-service checkout that simplifies the process and provides maximum security using a simple RFID reader. Our solution is based on the Alma API, which allows us to integrate with existing library systems. This makes it easy for libraries to implement our solution without having to make major changes to their infrastructure.
We would like to share our solution with the Alma community so that other libraries can benefit from it.
