Makes Photocopiers Obsolete

The photocopier was invented in

1938

All of these full-color Click Mini configurations are less expensive to own and operate than a typical B&W copier for libraries.

KIC says goodbye to photocopiers!

Face-up book scanning is sooo much easier than face-down, especially for books.

KIC is not a copier and does not “replace” copiers. It is a 21stcentury hybrid library technology that renders copiers in libraries obsolete.

Easy to Use KIC

The Easiest to Use Self-Serve Book Scanning Systems

I love KIC because its step-by-step directions are easy for me to follow.

Sequential is only faster the first time you use it.

I prefer KIC's modeless dashboard design... works like my cell phone.

Hi Lisa, take a look at the KIC station near
the help desk and make sure it's powered up.

I think the cleaning staff may have unplugged it when they moved some of the equipment last night.

Will do.

Thanks, Duane.

The usage statistics for the little KIC
system near the reference desk shows
that it's twice as busy as this bigger KIC.

Can we switch these two for better throughput and shorter lines?

Let's do that.

You've really got an informative tool there that makes it an easy decision.
