[Koha] Self-service hardware question

Thu Jun 4 02:30:11 NZST 2020

Our self check stations consist of a touch screen, a small computer that mounts to the back of the touch screen, a barcode scanner and a receipt printer.  You don't need anything more than that.  You can use Koha's self check software, or there is other software, free or paid.  If you want more information, feel free to contact me and I can get you more specifics.

We have no alarm system in any of our libraries (there are six of them, most of them relatively small with less than 3000 items each, no RFID). Ideally I need to find a cost effective solution, ideally something which would also incorporate generating a receipt (so students have proof of check in).
