4 KAT Stacks - like Google Street View and YELP, KAT Stacks allows students, faculty and researchers to virtually browse the stacks of your library from anywhere and learn why it is worth their time to visit your stacks.

4 KAT Stacks - Most professors are aware of the additional value that their students can derive from certain sections of their academic library's print collections. But until now, they haven't had a good way to make a connection to those sections of the print collections, certainly not a digital age connection.

Now, professors can present a QR code to their classes that when captured by phone or tablet they will immediately be launched into a virtual reality view of the targeted section in the stacks.

Students can browse the section, checking bibliographic records with a touch, and even lookup the nearest KIC digitization kiosk, at which they can digitize 30-60 pages in just a few minutes.

If this won't fix Stacks Apathy, nothing will.

4 Ways to Finance these new services now, before you are able to add budget line items for them:

  1. Redirect all funds for copiers on the library floor
    KIC Renders copiers for libraries quite obsolete
  2. Student technology fees
    KIC gives students the digital form they want, quickly and easily, and it typically saves students several times its cost just in copier fees, without using paper or ink
  3. Redirect some collection development funds, especially funds earmarked for digital content - in comparison to augmenting your collections by a few percentage points, fast digitize-on-demand with KIC composer, KSS and KAT dramatically increase the value of your existing print collections
  4. Digital initiatives grant money

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!

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.
