[AARS, DENMARK] – “I am very happy to be able to announce that Colin Carter will bring his many years of experience from libraries, and latest Innovative Interfaces Inc., and join Lyngsoe Systems in the Library Business Unit – specifically the IMMS™ team – from December 1, 2020”, says Business Unit Director Henrik Kjeldgaard.
A qualified librarian, with a degree in Library and Information Studies and History from Loughborough University in the UK, Colin has spent his whole career working in and with libraries. Initially working in public libraries in Edinburgh and Staffordshire in the UK, in the mid-90s Colin moved to the software side of the library world and has spent the last 25 years working for a number of integrated library management system companies, with the most recent being Innovative.
Colin is excited to be joining Lyngsoe Systems and sees the huge potential of IMMS™ to change the way that library services are being delivered in both public and academic libraries. It is clear that the IMMS™ has the ability to transform library services in many different ways and Colin looks forward to sharing this excitement with the library community.
“With Colin joining us in our efforts to support libraries across the globe with smarter processes, we look forward to engaging in even more dialogues on how IMMS™ can support the transformation libraries of all sizes are engaging in. At Lyngsoe Systems, we are always Working for Smarter Libraries, in order for libraries to thrive and add more and more value to the community, so I am very pleased to include Colin’s competences and many years of experience on precisely that journey,” concludes Henrik Kjeldgaard.
Lyngsoe Systems’ Library unit aims to release librarian power by offering logistics solutions for improved patron service. IMMS™ automatically reports the media as returned to the library management system, where all data resides. The integrated scanners in the inductions read the RFID tags and/or bar codes on the media, and the software determines the appropriate material category (e.g. novels), before sending the media on to the sorter. The sorter conveys the media to the chute/destination as defined by the library staff in the control software.
We help libraries work smarter and save time on material handling with smart library solutions. With the latest generation in Automated Material Handling for libraries, Sort Mate™ 2000, you will significantly improve circulation, while reducing cost and the need for physical handling of materials. IMMS™ gives public libraries and academic libraries control of collection, space, and float management.
