NOT AVAILABLE IN NORTH AMERICA

What?

Guided by Lyngsoe Library Mate™ self-service station, patrons are notified to put holds and reservations or materials for other libraries directly into the Holds Mate™. This ensures that the returned materials are not accidentally picked up by another patron

Library Mate™ provides feedback, ensuring that the patron places the material in the Holds Mate™ before continuing the return process. An optional indicator can alert patrons that the cart is full and that they should deposit the materials in a different cart.

The Holds Mate™ offers two options of integrated material registration with RFID or sensors. Both options can be placed in the units and report material entry back to the Library Mate™.

The design of the Holds Mate™ prevents patrons from removing returned materials. The side windows enable a clear, visual inspection for library staff when they need to empty the unit.

Why?

  • Fast return of reservations for circulation
  • Verification of item placement in the Holds Mate™
  • Full integration with Library Mate™ software
  • Fast, visual inspection of status
