A Beautiful Deployment, A Beautiful Library, But Also a Beautiful Concept
By Steve Hanulec / August 24, 2017 / Categories: #Ultrasort #News

Salt Lake County Library has deployed a 7-bin Tech Logic UltraSort sorting system in its West Jordan branch. It features all the components that make UltraSort the top choice for a positive patron experience with fast “Throw and Go” induction and no confusing interface — but there’s another feature that we know drives higher patron use of the sorter that doesn’t always get implemented: placing it behind glass so patrons can see it work.

American Libraries Magazine Features ValueIT™
By Kate Rader / July 25, 2017 / Categories: #News #ValueIT

American Libraries featured ValueIT™ as a "new labor-saving service" in a July online article called "Save Staff Time," written by Carrie Smith. The story recognizes how important weeded and donated materials are to raising money for friends' groups, but that it typically takes tremendous manpower to sort and price items. It highlights the benefits of Tech Logic's ValueIT™ system — saving time and generating the most revenue by determining market value.

Smith provides an excellent summary of the ValueIT™ system's process: "After the system scans a book’s barcode, the software queries a copy of Amazon’s book pricing database—updated twice daily—to determine its value. Based on a library’s parameters, high-value books can be boxed and shipped to Amazon for sale online through an account owned by the library or Friends group, allowing for a quick return on the book. When materials are sold online, Amazon deducts all shipping, handling, and fees and deposits the proceeds directly into the library’s or Friends’ account."   MORE...

Gary Kirk, President of Tech Logic Appointed to Board of United for Libraries
By / July 5, 2017 / Categories: #News

OAKDALE, MN (07/05/2017) Gary Kirk, President of Tech Logic a Minnesota-based manufacturer of automation systems, has been appointed to the board of United for Libraries, a Trustees and Friends advocacy group.

A division of the American Library Association, United for Libraries was the result of a 2009 merger between two advocacy groups: Friends of the Library USA and the Association for Library Trustees and Advocates. The combination of these advocacy groups promotes the development of strong Trustee and Friends of the Library groups along with providing education and tools to help facilitate a stronger advocacy voice for libraries across the U.S. The combined strength of fiscal development expertise and governing expertise allows for those who advocate for libraries to have deeper insights towards strengthening libraries in their communities.

Gary’s presence on the team will provide a unique vendor-based viewpoint that will help libraries and their advocates understand how to better implement modern workflow improvement systems as well as the means to best choose and acquire the right solutions. Having informed, subject matter-based Friends and Trustee transparent implementations will lead to better patron experiences, and higher library use.
