The Lib-Chip MediaBank CD/DVD dispensing unit provides a secure solution for libraries circulating CD’s and DVD’s. The MediaBank software is fully integrated with your LMS allowing patrons to borrow and return media without requiring staff intervention.

Allowing patrons to make their selections online remotely provides a sustained rental frequency of over 90 transactions per hour. The completely secure metal housing ensures materials are protected and provides the option of allowing the library to place this equipment in a location where 24 hour access is possible. The administration software makes the system easy to maintain for library staff and adding new materials a breeze.
