2CQR and RTI will be exhibiting at this year’s CILIP Conference which takes place 5-6 July, Manchester.

Come and visit us on Stand 26 at the CILIP Conference to see and discuss how our self-service kiosks and vending units can be incorporated into your library to provide faster, more convenient access to media for users and better control for library management. Complimenting 2CQR’s FlexAble open library solutions, RTI’s machines provide convenient extensions of libraries, increasing circulation and enabling access to library services 24/7.
