New 3M SelfCheck QuickConnect Interface Brings Revolutionary Options To Libraries And Patrons

3M Library Systems will unveil a fresh and re-imagined interface for its 3M™ SelfCheck™ system at the American Library Association Annual Conference & Exhibition, June 27 – July 1 in Chicago. After developing the SelfCheck category more than 20 years ago, 3M continues its leadership with the new 3M™ SelfCheck™ QuickConnect Interface, which gives libraries brand new tools to increase circulation, promote events, and enhance the user experience—all with a simplified interface that helps users do more with fewer steps.

Through an exciting new partnership, 3M SelfCheck stations will now draw on the power of NoveList® Select to give customers title recommendations from the library’s catalog based on the materials they are checking out. Customers can then place a title on hold, or print or e-mail recommendations. With eye-catching displays of cover art and summaries, the Recommended Reads feature engages customers, helping to plan their next visit and keep them coming back to the library. 3M’s system for providing recommendations through the library catalog at SelfCheck is patent pending.

“Libraries will have an opportunity to connect more strongly to those patrons who may ordinarily do no more than come in the library, pick up a book, check out and leave,” said Duncan Smith, vice president of NoveList. “Now those ‘drive by’ readers will have a reason to plan their next visit to the library.”

The new QuickConnect Interface also gives libraries the opportunity and the tools to promote events, activities and services. The Patron Promos feature makes it easy to upload customized promotions and display them to customers at checkout, making an impression when you have their full attention.

“The SelfCheck kiosk is typically the last interaction the patron has with the library before leaving, so it’s important to us to take advantage of those moments and leave a lasting impression,” said Carolyn Anthony, director of the Skokie Public Library. “The new interface lets us promote more of our offerings, and tools like Recommended Reads help us deliver a high level of service to patrons and keep them coming back.”
