It’s not much wonder why OLA’s Super Conference is one of our favourite events of the year – filling Toronto’s Convention Centre with passionate discussions that are led by expert librarians, researchers, and policymakers.
This year’s conference will challenge attendees to expand their vision of what a library can be, as communities and educational needs continue to evolve. This includes supplying patrons with the tools and devices they need to succeed in their professional lives, rather than limiting libraries to academic purposes. Ristech will be in the exposition hall to discuss and demo novel innovations in the field, including ComputeIT, CopiBook OS A1, and the ST ViewScan 4 Microfilm Scanner.
The ComputeIT is a multi-bay modular locker system designed to safely store, charge, and deploy laptop computers. It has the capacity to provide connectivity to millions of patrons worldwide and helps libraries better serve the needs of their communities.
Of course, it is important to honour the history of our libraries while moving the public sector forward. The CopiBook OS A1 is the ideal scanner for large-format digitization projects that call for high-quality and maximum productivity. This is the best scanner on the market for newspapers and maps.
Researchers who use microfilm and microfiche will be excited by the ST ViewScan 4 Microfilm Scanner. This powerful tool streamlines browsing, scanning, and storing information. Researchers can quickly read headlines without having to wait for the image to refresh and become clear. Once scanned, the image can be saved in a variety of formats to multiple locations, including email, Google Drive, and Dropbox. What’s more, it can be shared through inter-library loans or printed on library network printers.
The Ristech team is excited to meet you and learn about your upcoming initiatives and goals for 2020. Come visit us at booth 534/536 during exhibition hours.
