DLOS customers

Not everyone is comfortable using computers to find what they need. DLOS gives users with very little, or no experience using browsers a simplified view where they can touch a visual representation of the information they seek. Each DLOS screen provides helpful pointers and encouragement as the user views links to important information on a wide variety of topics.

DLOS customers

For example, patrons can touch the DLOS screen to see a local bus or rail schedule, watch a video to learn about community services available to them, apply for healthcare insurance, print tax forms, write local or state officials, safely store personal documents, access email and social media and much more!

DLOS helps libraries reach out the local community with products that are useful and accessible to even the most timid users. Even those very unlikely to consider using a personal computer can be drawn in by DLOS’ friendly, simple interface. Learning something new in the supportive, stress-free environment of a local library can both be engaging and productive.

DLOS works hand-in-hand with our KIC patron-use scanning systems to capture, organize and maintain important personal documents. Birth certificates, passports, diplomas, legal documents, tax forms and financial information are examples of things that can be easily scanned using a KIC patron-use scanning system, stored on a USB thumb drive and accessed, organized, backed up, faxed and printed at a DLOS station in your library.

I Feel Good Knowing That My Important Legal and Personal Documents are Safe and Completely In My Control

I took my important family documents, medical records, financial paperwork, and even my social security card and drivers license to my local library and used the KIC station there to scan everything to my DLOS MyDocs USB. Now I know it’s all safe and easy for me to find anytime I need it.

I use MyDocs at the library to manage all of our family photos and everything that my son makes for me in preschool.

USB Flash Drive = MyPC

Our library’s DLOS stations are great, and with a USB flash drive, any DLOS station becomes my own PC.

  • Helps me find important information on the Web
  • Helps me organize my documents, photos, and my budget
  • Gives budget tips and actually helps me reach my spending and savings goals
  • Remembers my browsing cookies
  • Works great with KIC Scan/Print/Fax stations

I never really thought about owning my own PC because it was never in my budget, but now I can’t see doing without one.

I didn’t know much about computers, but when my local library let me know that all I needed was a USB memory stick, that got me interested in finding out what I could do with one. Now all my important documents are on my keychain, and any time I need them, I just go to the library.
