What Advantage Does AI Enhanced Scanning Give My Library Staff?

The new AI-enhanced scan function saves time, a precious commodity in the lives of librarians and knowledge staff. Less time doing data entry means more time delivering all those value-added services to users!

It’s easy. Library staff can:

  • Select the resource they want via the Liberty Link mobile app.
  • Photograph a page of text included in a resource.

Examples of text could be:

  • A table of contents.
  • An abstract.
  • A paragraph within a resource.

The text is then included in a field on the resource record in your catalogue. From there it can be copied to your preferred fields within the record. We told you it is easy!

Staff can also use the function to photograph an image they want added to a catalogue record and process it in the same way as the text.

Softlink IC is offering all Liberty customers the opportunity to scan up to 25 text or images for free. Once you try it, you won’t want to give it up!
