The new look of the system is similar to familiar mobile and tablet interfaces, designed for patrons to be able to easily navigate to the features they need via a streamlined process. Additional ease-of-use upgrades include simple animations to guide users through the check-out process and enhanced assistance buttons available on every screen.On the back end, the QuickConnect Interface offers robust new features with a completely redesigned system manager. Libraries are given flexible tools and the ability to meet their specific needs by choosing from dozens of configurable design templates and themes. Library staff can easily access reports and navigate the system to find the information they need. The system is also optimized for tablets, so library staff can access it from a variety of devices. “3M SelfCheck systems have been helping libraries optimize circulation for more than 20 years,” said Skip Driessen, business manager, 3M Library Systems. “With the new SelfCheck QuickConnect, we’re continuing that innovation by giving libraries tools to increase circulation and patron engagement today, as well as an enhanced platform that will resonate with patrons and help meet the needs of their communities.” The new SelfCheck QuickConnect will be showcased at the 3M Library Systems booth, number 1636, at the ALA Exhibition. The system will be available for sale in late 2013. For more information, visit 3M.com/QuickConnect. 3M and SelfCheck are trademarks of 3M. Used under license in Canada.
