Workstation Management

How It Works

  • When not in use, workstations are in a locked state.
  • Timed sessions are assigned to workstations via staff at a console, local workstation login, or automatically via the waiting list.
  • Patrons will see a small countdown timer showing the remaining time for the session.
  • When the timer expires, the workstation locks and is ready for the next assignment.


  • Complete accounting of computer time being allocated to the public.
  • Reduction in staff confrontation with patrons.
  • Staff and administrators can see the status of the library workstations at a glance.
