Naseej Implements the First Self-Check System in Lebanon at the Lebanese American University's Library
Beirut, Lebanon, February 1st, 2016
Naseej – the leading provider of Knowledge Management Solutions in the Middle East – has implemented the first 3M Self-Check™ System in Lebanon, at Riyad Nassar Library in the Lebanese American University – Beirut Campus.
Riyad Nassar Library covers an area of 800 square meters and serves more than 1500 patrons daily; including students, faculty, and researchers. Presently, the Library holds over 300,000 information records, more than 350 current print periodicals and 7 special collections. In addition to 160 commercial and open access electronic resources (e-Books and e-Journals) and Non-print materials (e.g., maps, videos, slides).
On this issue, Mrs. Cendrella Habre, the University Librarian at LAU states; "We needed a Self-Check system that is compatible with our Integrated Library System, which can read magnetic strip, ID cards, as well as our collections barcode. We looked for an easy-to-use system that can seamlessly integrate with our ILS and Security Gates. Eventually, we chose 3M Self-Check™ System V-Series offered by Naseej as it ensures all these capabilities and more."
"3M's Self-Check System provides a large number of services," assures Mr. Nabil Badran, the Circulation Librarian "such as user-friendly interface through touch screen wizard instructions with patrons’ privacy, and automatic receipt printing or sending transaction details to user's email. Moreover, our librarians benefit from the system's built-in statistical reports for usage rates and trends."
The 3M Self-Check™ System V-Series offered by Naseej is a fast, versatile checkout solution, which is very intuitive as it virtually assures the success of first-time users. The system processes books, magazines, videos, CDs and DVDs and provides web-based remote monitoring and diagnostics tools.
