Tulsa’s Librarium a testing ground for new library tech systems

“Last year was a year of innovative ideas and technology upgrades at the Tulsa City-County Library system. The biggest testing ground for the library’s ideas was the Librarium, a temporary branch that opened downtown in September while Central Library undergoes a 2-year renovation. “We’re trying out all kinds of things at the Librarium,” said library CEO Gary Shaffer. Many of the experiments revolve around technology, including new automatic checkout machines that are easier to use than those located at other branches. The new machines allow library users to check out multiple books at a time. Shaffer said the library system plans to gradually roll out the new device to other branches. (via Tulsa World)
