Self-service coming to the Royal Free Hospital Medical Library
From August 2015 the Royal Free Hospital Medical Library will operate an RFID self-service system for book loans, renewals and returns.
This will improve services to all library users by reducing queues at the desk and saving time. The self-issue machine will be situated close to the Issue/Enquiry point on the ground floor of the Medical Library. As part of the project almost 20000 books will need to be tagged and new equipment installed. Planning for this project is already well underway with work scheduled to take place in June and early July. We predict minimum disruption to services during this time. Regular updates will be forthcoming.
