Covering a wide range of subjects, professions or research, the range of libraries often defined as “special” are sometimes smaller and usually much more focused than their academic and public counterparts. The specialist knowledge of staff is its greatest asset, so finding ways to free them from everyday tasks is vital to the successful operation of the library.

"They also understood our practical and budgetary requirements and made our move from the barcode, EM (Electro Magnetic) system to RFID security and self-service a simple process and the new product was an immediate success...it worked first time and is easy to use.
