With access control software like Alpha Track, it's possible to create cards with varying levels of access privileges that can help control library access depending on user, class, field, time, date and more. students and researchers can use their customized access control cards to access the library at any time - whether it's finals week or they're just a night owl. Access control technology integrated into college library cards keeps everyone happy and knee-deep in their studies while keeping the library and its vast collections safe.
