Investing in libraries with 2CQR
At the official opening of Tullamore Library in Offaly Government Minister Phil Hogan reaffirmed the commitment to libraries in Ireland. The €2.2m open plan library has proved extremely popular with over 70,000 books, DVDs and games issued on loan and 4,500 new members signing up in the first months of opening. Unique, pearlescent 2CQR Totems also helped with a successful move to self–service, now handling 70 per cent of library transactions.
Similar success has been seen at the newly opened Ballyroan Library, a €4.0m redevelopment. Here 2CQR supplied and installed Nedap security gates and five customised RFID Totem units, which permit customers to borrow, return and pay any charges. The Nedap gates are a discrete enhancement to the modern, stylish architecture while the Totems provide a perfect focus within the library's colour scheme.
Other Irish libraries benefitting from 2CQR’s RFID and EM security, self- service and promotional products include:
- University of Limerick
- Glucksman Library
- University College Cork
- Boole Library
- Wexford County Council Public Libraries
- South Dublin County Council Libraries
2CQR has worked exclusively with librarians for over two decades, consistently meeting the challenge to deliver solutions in self-service, intelligent displays, stock management, access and security. Originally founded on EM (Electro-Magnetic) systems, 2CQR is now leader in RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology.
Their specialist system planning and software expertise complements the reliable and dedicated products, which in turn are supported by our network of trusted consultants and engineers providing service, maintenance and long-term support.
