Circulation system of the library is completely automated with RFID based technology, biometric enabled user authentication, self check-out kiosk and system generated reminders. For circulation of documents 'Self Service Kiosk' is installed in the library which enables users to check-out, check-in and renew books by themselves. Kiosk is operational from 8 am to 11 pm on all days including holidays. For each transaction, Kiosk generates the receipt with details of documents transacted and due dates. To make use of automated Kiosk service, users need to get their fingerprint recorded once at the Reference Desk during the office working hours. Please note that Kiosk will not allow users to get books issued if their library account quota is already full. It will also not allow for renewal of overdue books and books having reservations. Security Sensor Gates are installed at the exit which sounds buzzer on passing of un-borrowed books. Premises covering Kiosk and Sensor Gates are being continuously monitored with CC camera for security reasons.
