Safe and secure tablet loan at Balham and Putney libraries

LOAN A TABLET AS EASILY AS A BOOK AT BALHAM AND PUTNEY LIBRARIES.

GLL, who manage libraries across the UK, are committed to bringing innovative and ambitious services to the communities they serve. One area they believed needed attention was in the supply of digital content safely and securely to library users.

Until recently access to digital newspapers and magazines, e-­‐books and other electronic materials has proved problematic both with security and management. Now with the installation of the Hublet Solution, both library users and library management at two of GLL libraries are benefitting from the latest technology.

For users the self-­‐service tablets make access simple to all types of digital and electronic media. They are ideal for workshops and events with content easily tailored to different target groups. Smaller and more compact than PCs, the tablets are space saving, portable and, for privacy, wiped clean when returned to the docking station.

From a management perspective the Hublet docking station and tablets are a time saving solution being administered remotely, with any necessary changes to content uploaded automatically when tablets are returned to the docking station. Supplied and installed by 2CQR the Hublet solution is providing another welcomeinnovative and essential service in GLL managed libraries.
