About State Central Library (SCL) Goa
SCL, Goa is the oldest Public Library in India having more than 2.5 lakhs of books in different languages and 26,000 members.
In the year 2010, a new building of the SCL Goa was still under construction and they wanted to fully automate and modernize their library. Library holdings were available on LIBSYS library management software. The Curator and his team had to adopt and deliver a modern library to the citizens of Goa before shifting to the new building.
LIBSYS team delivered LSmart-RFID System at SCL Goa in a short span of time in the year 2011 and tagged their entire library collection using RFID Book Tags. Intensive hands-on training was imparted to the library staff for smooth operations. A smart card was designed and given to their patrons for self issue/return of books of LSmart-RFID Kiosks.
LIBSYS installed a pair of RFID EAS Pedestals on all the six floors of their new building and a double lane on EAS gates of the main library floor.
A modern library automation system was delivered and implemented at SCL Goa making it a smart public library for its users.
