The International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) will host its

2014 annual conference June 20 - 24 in Montreal. The conference provides campus public safety leaders an opportunity to learn new strategies to improve campus safety.

If you plan to attend, add LEID Products booth #29 to your agenda. LEID Products will showcase its patented BACS Asset Management System. Why visit our booth? A quick six question survey will help you determine the answer to that question. If you can answer yes to any of the questions below, you may want to consider an asset management system. If you can answer yes to three or more of the questions, your department should not be without an asset management system.
  1. Do officers share weapons, equipment and/or keys?
  2. Are shared weapons and/or keys manually tracked?
  3. Have any weapons, equipment and/or keys been misplaced for more than an hour?
  4. Have any weapons or equipment missed any required maintenance intervals and continued to be used in the field?
  5. Has equipment been damaged without knowing who was responsible?
  6. Have any of your officers had to start their shift without all of their equipment because the issuing supervisor was unavailable?
Lack of an efficient process for tracking shared assets is problematic for many departments. On top of the duplicated manpower required for a supervised asset checkout process, an asset or a set of master keys may go missing for several days, or lost altogether, with limited quick access to who last used the asset/keys. This lack of accountability, can lead to careless damage to assets, costly rekeying of the campus, or and more importantly, compromised safety of students and staff.

The BACS Asset Management System consist of any combination of tamper proof Electronic Access Cabinets, SmartGuard Handgun Safes, SmartRail Gun Racks, and BACS Key Cabinet interfaced to the biometrically (fingerprint) accessed BACS ID Station Kiosk serving as the control point for access to assets stored in the system.

LEID's Electronic Lockers Utilizing RFID and biometric technology, the BACS System eliminates time-consuming manual asset transaction record keeping allowing officers to single handedly pick up and drop off department assets. The system tracks all maintenance requirements and timing, as well as keeps detailed records of previous usage for every asset stored in the system. Through remote access, department leaders and administrators can control the system at all times.

Attend our educational seminar at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday; you will learn more about the success of the system at other campus and law enforcement departments. The IACLEA Exhibit program guide will contain a LEID Products door prize ticket. Attendees wishing to enter the drawing for the $100 cash door prize can do so at LEID's booth. The drawing will be held at the booth on Saturday.


Attending the ALA Conference? 
Visit LEID Products at Booth #1256
Technology has been evolving rapidly; just think of how far the PC has come in the past decade. Over the last decade Librarians have kept pace with changing technologies and increased the relevancy of their libraries by becoming more connected and available. Yes, the advent of the internet has made information more readily accessible, but the skeptics who thought the library would go the way of the dinosaurs, were just way off the mark.

The Annual American Library Association (ALA) Conference brings together librarians, educators, authors, publishers, and vendors to collaborate and learn how to meet the changing needs of their patrons. LEID Products will be showcasing the iLibrary System - booth #1256 - at the 2014 ALA Conference June 26 - July 1, 2014. LEID offers a compelling solution for community outreach and patron accessibility.

Last week LEID announced the release of version 3.0 of its iLibrary Kiosk. The iLibrary kiosk is used in conjunction with LEID's Electronic Modular Access Units to offer a complete self-service 'Express Library' solution.

LEID Products iLibrary System is a cost effective, secure, rugged, and tamper proof self-service library access system for libraries to make materials more accessible to all patrons. The system provides an innovative way for libraries to deliver services to rural areas and growing communities where a brick and mortar library is not feasible. In addition, many urban libraries are using the system for patrons to access reserved materials after hours. LEID's iLibrary Kiosk and secure electronic lockers can be located outside under cover, making the self-service library available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.

With LEID's iLibrary System, library patrons browse materials online or directly through the iLibrary Kiosk. Orders are placed through the kiosk or remotely via the internet using their library card number. The patron will receive an email with an access code when their materials are available. New enhancements to the iLibrary Kiosk include, NEMA4x rated enclosure, touch screen monitor, SunBright display, and solid state heat/cool device.

"Today people have come to expect convenience. We have found that when a library installs one or two of these systems, they end up adding more locations," commented Sam Hoff, president of LEID Products. "Our library customers have told us that their patrons love the ease of browsing for library materials on the library website or at the iLibrary Kiosk, and then having the reserved materials delivered to a convenient location, rather than taking time out of their busy day to go to the library."

The primary key to the success of an 'Express Library' utilizing LEID's iLibrary System has been placement. Public libraries implementing this program have researched and evaluated where to locate these systems based on community gathering places. Whether that is a community center, an ice rink, or a shopping plaza depends on the community. The location selected is convenient for the residents to pick up their library materials where they are already going.
