St George College Library has been fortunate enough to secure funding to allow the purchase of some brand new security gates. You will certainly notice the difference when you walk into the library. The new gates are streamlined and modern looking. They also have the added benefit of not needing the ramp and mats that were previously in place. Both of these make access easier for those with mobility issues and remove the potential for trip hazards.
The new gates use the same system as our previous gates, meaning that no retrofitting of library materials was required. However, they also future proof the library as they have the capability of RFID technology built in.
Let’s hope that the library is able to upgrade to RFID in the future.
