Why NGL Touch?

Self-service terminals help librarians/library staff to minimize their efforts at Circulation desk. Using Self-service terminals library users can Check out (Issue), Check in (Return), and Renew Items themselves.
NGL Touch application has been optimized for Touch screens. Therefore if your self service kiosk is using a touch screen, NGL Touch is ready for the finger touch.
Please note that NGL Touch does not require any technologies like RFID or EM.

Bare minimal cost

Purchase a Kiosk of your choice. NGL Touch is completely free, open source and platform independent.

Budget strapped libraries may even deploy a simple PC for this task instead of costly kiosks. You can get the same output at 20% the cost (Save 80%)


What NGL Touch can do?

Using NGL Touch your users can
– Self Check out
– Self Check in (One level approval of library staff required before actual check in)
– Self Renewal
– Items held by the user
– Important messages from the library like Overdue items, Recall notices, Reservation intimations, Requests for check outs, Over dues to be paid, and Items that need immediate Renewal

– OPAC access

– Timer based auto logout in case the user forgets to logout before leaving the self service terminal
