• Automatic synchronisation – When the LMS is changed from check in to checkout, the
Circulation Assistant automatically synchronises with the LMS and visually identifies
the change of status. This means the security status is always set correctly making
it the most accurate product on the market.

• Speedy – The Circulation Assistant replaces the barcode filler to transfer the
item number to the field on the LMS screen. The Circulation Assistant can process
up to 5 items at a time,significantly speeding up circulation office functions.

• Pop-up monitor – The Circulation Assistant monitors all pop-up screens that alert
the operator when there is an exception (eg. on hold or item to be weeded etc).
When the pop-up screen appears the Circulation Assistant waits until the exception
is dealt with by the librarian prior to populating the information for the next item.

• Compact kit: This kit comprises the Circulation Assistant software and a low power
USB connected RFID reader with integrated antenna. This kit is useful where desk space
is limited or low volumes of items are to be processed. The reader is powered by the USB port.

• Standard kit: This kit comprises the Circulation Assistant software and a high power
RFID reader with a separate antenna pad. This kit is useful where high volumes of
items are to be processed and desk space is available. The reader connects to the
computer via a USB port and is powered by a separate 12v power supply.

• Shielded Standard kit: This kit comprises the Circulation Assistant software and a
high power RFID reader with a separate shielded antenna pad. This kit is useful where
high volumes of items are to be processed and desk space is available but the environment
is not suitable to use a standard antenna. This could include situations such as the following:
1. The working surface is made of metal
2. The table has metal frames
3. The space under the antenna is used to store library items.
