Barnet's libraries implement iCAM Wireless Access Control

2008 will see Barnet's libraries benefit from a range of services and resources aimed at attracting non-users and allowing Barnet residents to benefit from 21st century technology.

Hendon Library which had a massive facelift in 2004 saw an increase of visitors when the existing dark and old fashioned building was transformed into a bright and welcoming resource for all the family with a series of zones, and an award winning café.  And now it is set to benefit more with the launch of Wi-Fi last December allowing members free internet access from anywhere in the building.

Edgware and Chipping Barnet Libraries both close shortly and re-open with additional services and resources including improved layouts, self service machines, Wi-Fi, improved access for disabled people, community facilities and access to a range of council information.

Barnet Libraries press release 22/01/2008 - Hendon Library leads the way

“the implementation was very smooth and integration with our LMS was surprisingly easy, which was key for us because we are not currently allowing non-members to use the Wi-Fi hotspot.”
