KIC Self-Serve scanning system

KIC Logo

KIC is a self-serve scanning system that instantly turns your print collection into a digitize-on-demand collection.

KIC is often considered the most important piece of technology in the library.

KIC makes PDF files instead of paper copies, but it can print too, so it replaces copiers. With KIC you can clip, crop, split pages. You can scan your thesis papers and print books!

MyDocs includes KIC Study System (see KSS below). MyDocs can be purchased for $9.99 or downloaded for free and activated for free at a KIC station that has rights for unlimited free activation of MyDocs on handheld devices.

KIC Study System

MyDocs

KIC Study System, KSS, is an amazing new capability of KIC and MyDocs. Students scan study materials on KIC and output KSS packets of digitized text, audio and metadata to MyDocs on their smart phone or tablet, and use the KSS feature of MyDocs to study with greatly increased efficiency and effectiveness. KSS includes three great study capabilities:

  • SKIM – computer-assisted speed reading that does not require training and is normally used to skim material immediately prior to studying using ReadAlong Audio. Teachers often recommend skimming a chapter before studying it thoroughly, and the KSS SKIM feature is faster, easier and more compelling to use than simply skimming text the traditional way.
  • ReadAlong Audio – It is common knowledge that listening to text while reading it substantially improves retention, but KSS makes it easy to switch back and forth between SKIM and ReadAlong Audio, which is essential for maximum retention. And during ReadAlong Audio, the audio can be paused at any time and flash cards can be created. Making flashcards is like highlighting important text while studying, but the result is not simply highlighted text, but interactive flashcards that the student can use to test his/her retention.
  • Flashcards – A perfect complement to SKIM and ReadAlong Audio, Flashcards are made by pausing ReadAlong Audio and simply zoning the question, then zoning the answer. After completely covering a section or chapter of study material with SKIM and ReadAlong Audio, students can continue studying with flashcards while simultaneously testing the completeness of their learning retention.

Because MyDocs and KSS run on android and Apple phones and tablets, students can also study anywhere and anytime they have a free moment.

KSS is included with Android and Apple versions of MyDocs, and will be added to the MS-Windows version of MyDocs near the end of 2018, thus making it available on StudentStudentPatron use MS-Windows PC stations in academicK-12public libraries.

KIC POD

KIC Fleet Manager

KIC POD is a wonderful new addition to the growing capabilities of KIC. It is included in all new releases of KIC at no additional charge, and therefore does not need to be purchased separately. With KIC's new Print On Demand functionality, students can bring PDFs of their theses into the library, order printed copies at reasonable prices, ensured by KIC’s book printing marketplace, pay by credit card and the book(s) will be printed, packaged and shipped within days. Most universities no longer offer such services because of diminishing demand. However, many students today would like to have a few printed copies of their thesis books, and with KIC POD, it is easy and cost-effective. Faculty can also compose books from their course materials, and if there are no copyright issues, they can print hardbound or paperback books for their students. In addition, library staff, faculty and other university employees can bring from their homes to the library, a few dozen to several hundred of their printed photos, scan them on KIC, compose a beautiful digital scrap book using KIC’s huge touch screen and order printed books. Of course, KIC can also scan existing scrap books and photo albums, recipe cards, book excerpts, loose papers, newspaper & magazine articles, and more, and they can also be turned into digital books and printed books ordered. With its huge touch screen and ultra-easy user interface, clipping, cropping, rearranging content and pages is easy, even for the most technically timid users!

DLOS - Digital Library Operating System

DLOS Logo

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 with SAW, My Docs, MyPC

MS-Windows, Apple OS and Android for Chromebooks were designed for use by owners of personal computers, and as such, are not ideal for many students. Digital Library Operating System, DLOS, was designed for student patrons. It provides four great values to students:

  • A large screen for using KIC Study System, for students that prefer a larger screen than their phone or tablet, and for students that have no phone or tablet.
  • A large screen for organizing all digital study materials and other digital content, including photos, documents and other items. This reduces the time that students spend on KIC systems, freeing them up for the more important function of digitizing study and research material.
  • A $5 PC feature, which allows students to turn any USB memory device into a DLOS personal memory device. When the DLOS personal memory device is plugged into a USB port on a DLOS PC, the PC works as if it is their own personal computer, with their own data, including KIC Study System content and other content scanned by a KIC system.
  • Student’s Access to the Web, SAW, which allows students to surf Web sites that have been specifically recommended by faculty for specific courses using SAW Commons, a campus-wide database of web sites and optional notes, commentaries and instructions. SAW and SAW Commons are great collaborative study tools that are located in the library and customized remotely by faculty.

MS-Windows, Apple OS and Android for Chromebooks were designed for use by owners of personal computers, and as such, are not ideal for many public library patrons. Digital Library Operating System, DLOS, was designed for patron use. It provides four great values:

  • A large screen for using KIC Study System, for students that prefer a larger screen than their phone or tablet, and for students that have no phone or tablet.
  • A large screen for organizing family documents, photos, archives and other items. This reduces the time that patrons spend on KIC systems, freeing them up for the more important functions of digitizing study and research material, digitizing personal and family documents, archives and memorabilia, composing digital scrap books and ordering printed scrap books, and lastly, copier replacement functions such as scanning, copying and faxing.
  • A $5 PC feature, which allows digitally disadvantaged patrons (patrons that do not own a computer) to turn any USB memory device into a DLOS personal memory device. When the DLOS personal memory device is plugged into a USB port on a DLOS PC, the PC works as if it is the memory device owner’s own personal computer, with his or her own data, including KIC Study System content and other content scanned by a KIC system.
  • Simplified Access to the Web, SAW, which allows patrons to find commonly searched information on the Web along with digital assistance to help them find and interpret the content and even follow directions for filling out forms or signing up for public services. Librarians can enter Web page addresses, instructions and helpful hints into a national database called SAW Commons and share some or all of that information with other libraries, other cities, other counties and even other states. The ‘search topics and items’ that are stored in SAW Commons can then be downloaded into all the DLOS PCs in a library.
