University of Notre Dame Hesburgh Library Uses AirTrack S1 for Check-In/Check-Out

Posted November 29, 2016

The University of Notre Dame Hesburgh Library is the home to over 3.3 million volumes, amongst the top 75 collections within all U.S. research universities. It serves over 14,000 students, faculty, and staff and has a circulation of 329,511. The IT Systems Analyst for the library came to Barcodes, Inc.  because their current barcode scanner did not scan barcodes well under the LED lights. Additionally, the clerks received no negative feedback when a barcode was unable to be read. Finally, the library staff wanted a barcode scanner that could be stationed throughout the campus libraries where students and employees can check books in and out as needed with their ID cards, which would ultimately create more space in certain areas of the library.

Barcodes, Inc. recommended the AirTrack S1 barcode scanner for their library. The S1 is equipped with 1D reading technology and Green Spot technology for good-read feedback. The Green Spot improves user performance by projecting a green spot directly on the bar code just read. This visual confirmation is perfect for applications where silent reading is preferred or in environments that are too noisy to hear the beep, such as a library. The University of Notre Dame has been pleased with the performance and uniqueness that AirTrack brings to the table.

Is Rewritable ID Card Technology a Fit for your Business?

Posted July 2, 2015

Does your company have frequent visitors who stay at your facility or building for a short period of time?
Or are you looking for a way to avoid throwing away cards after one use?

Datacard’s SD260 printer and SD260S card printers now come standard with rewrite technology. Rewritable cards feature a clear, heat-sensitive layer that can be erased and rewritten over 500 times. Rewrite technology provides an affordable way to update cards with frequently changing data or create reusable cards, because rewritable cards reduce the supply costs of reissuance. Datacard offers 2 card options: Blank Rewriteable cards (809836-001) and Magnetic Stripe Rewriteable cards (809836-002)

Rewrite technology is ideal for:

  • Corporate visitor ID cards
  • Student IDs with rewritable class schedules
  • Patient ID cards with rewritable appointments/schedules
  • Transit cards with rewritable ticketing details or schedules
  • Retail cards with rewritable loyalty points
  • Ski lift tickets and other recreation cards

Call one of our ID specialist to discuss how rewriteable cards may work for your business or organization.
