Financial Help

Your library may be eligible for grant funding to assist with the cost of a new TLC automation system or to provide safe, contactless services through options like the CARES ACT. Finding and applying for appropriate grants can be a daunting process, but the payoff is well worth the effort.

Pandemic Responses

As schools and libraries closed across the country to help mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic, there was concern over continued learning for students. LibrarySolution® for Schools makes it much easier to support the curriculum and otherwise keep students engaged and learning.

For school staff and students returning to physical campuses, we shared a few creative workflow ideas for managing a circulating classroom collection using LibrarySolution® for Schools. Use Academic Reserves, Responsible Party, and List Sharing functionality to manage all the library materials on the classroom syllabus, before setting foot on campus.

Libraries have had to adapt and grow to fit their community needs for as long as there have been communities and libraries to serve them. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced libraries to shift faster, in an unsteady trajectory, while discerning staff and patron safety. In this K12 schools-focused webinar, TLC’s Customer Success Manager, Melissa Powell, interviewed school library voices from the front line of the pandemic to identify their biggest challenges and how they’ve transformed.

Self-Service Stations

TLC is the only ILS vendor with its own automated material handling and RFID division, focused exclusively on libraries. Self-service locations don’t need to be tethered to a single location. By strategically deploying self-check solutions throughout your library, you can engage with your borrowers at a deeper level with a higher quality of service. We deliver the most customizable and flexible kiosk options available, with additional stations designed for children and young adults. Staff can monitor borrower progress remotely to insure a problem-free experience. These self-service stations can be easily configured to meet your library’s needs.
