UCLan wins RFID in Libraries Innovation award

The Unversity of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has been crowned the winner of the 2011 BIC/CILIP RFID Innovation Award for their extended use of the sorter. UCLan has adapted their 3M FX Sorter, using Capita’s Bridge Pro to sort item into the correct bins, and upload acquisitions to the LMS.

Using the sorter in this way will allow UCLan to get items on to shelves and available to students within a couple of hours of delivery – a process that previously could take up to a week. As Jeremy Andrew, Head of Library and Training Services at UCLan, explains, this will significantly improve the student experience.

Watch a video of the sorter, in which Jeremy also talks about how the sorter was adapted, and the full benefits it will bring the library.
