Book-Drop (Return Station)
The Book Drops can be located anywhere, within or outside the library. Possible remote locations outside the library include MRT/train stations, shopping centers, schools, etc.This offers unprecedented flexibility and convenience of returning library items at anytime of the day, even when the library is closed.
Patron inserts the library item into the slot. The reader captures the electronic signature and sends to backend system for loan cancellation. Patron is acknowledged by beeping sound and flashlight. Patron’s record is updated immediately. This is possible due to the seamless link between LibBest Library RFID Management System and the host computer system. As such, users who have reached their loan quota can start borrowing items once they have returned them through the Book Drop.
