Our products are designed to provide a welcoming, intuitive and seamless experience for those that use the library, wherever they happen to be – at home, on the move or within the walls of the library itself.
We’ve worked with libraries for 50 years and are proud of the many innovations we’ve brought to the industry in partnership with cutting-edge, technology-minded customers around the world. We have offices in all major continents and support libraries in more than 70 countries through our dedicated distributors. We partner with more than 30,000 unique libraries, helping them evolve their services and connect with their communities.
By employing a host of degreed librarians and immersing ourselves in library trend conversations, we understand the unique management challenges that today’s libraries face. Our innovative solutions help libraries transform perceptions, increase access to collections and spaces, and provide engaging interactions, all with the aim of enhancing the user experience.
From our comprehensive range of library-based digital, RFID, Electromagnetic (EM) Tattle-Tape and hybrid solutions, to our cutting-edge digital eBook and eAudiobook lending service, bibliotheca’s goal is to enhance the overall importance of libraries, empowering them to reinvent their services and encourage lifelong learning today and well into the future.
Products and Services
Self-service: it’s only convenient if it’s easy!
Our intuitive solutions were developed to meet the specific needs of library users. Not only can users easily borrow, return and renew physical items at our selfCheck™ kiosks, but they can also borrow items from their smartphones, receive interactive selfCheck receipts on the go, easily switch between multiple virtual library cards in-app, and discover digital materials both at the physical selfCheck and on the go.
Extending access and increasing open hours with open+
open+ is a comprehensive solution that allows libraries to increase their open hours and build community engagement with extended access to self-service resources, wireless connections, physical collections and inviting spaces. Not only can libraries attract new users who are unable to visit the library during traditional hours but they can also be more flexible with their staff hours and focus on literacy needs of the community beyond the four walls of the library.
