Providing an intuitive and efficient self-service solution for Rotherham College

Rotherham College is part of the RNN Group, a group of education and training organisations which also includes North Notts College, Dearne Valley College and University Centre Rotherham.

The college provides courses for school leavers and adults including Higher Education (HE) and skills. While the library collection is relatively small, it is heavily used by HE learners and also plays a key role in supporting students with more complex queries on areas such as referencing, academic writing and research.

The college found that staff were spending a lot of time issuing and returning items, meaning they were not always free to help students with more complex queries around academic skills. During peak times of the week, queues would build up, meaning learners would have to wait before being able to borrow or return library items.

They were looking for a new technology solution that would not only have benefits for library users, but one that would allow them to achieve cost and eiciency savings too.
