“National Library of Scotland goes smart with sQuid”
24 June 2010

sQuidcard, the electronic money (eMoney) operator, today announces the addition of sQuid eMoney on the National Library of Scotland’s (NLS) smartcards in Edinburgh.

From today library visitors and staff alike at the National Library of Scotland will be able to top up their NLS library card with money online, which they can use to pay for items in the library using the latest contactless smart card technology. The card can be used at the library café to buy a drink or snack, at the main registration desk and at the NLS shop to pay for gifts and other items.

Paying with sQuid is quick and simple. Card holders can top up their sQuid accounts online with money and then pay for small value items, without the need to carry loose change. Transactions are very fast, secure, and their sQuid account enables users to track their transactions and manage their money online.

John Coll, Head of Access and Enquiries at the National Library of Scotland said, “The addition of sQuid to the NLS card is a significant new benefit. We are excited at the prospect of modernising and updating how we work to benefit our staff as well as our visitors, by offering new services like sQuid”.

John Gallacher, Regional Manager for sQuid in Scotland says, “sQuid have already successfully launched in Dundee, Dumfries and Galloway and North Lanarkshire with the National Entitlement card, and are about to launch in Aberdeen City. The addition of sQuid on to the NLS card is an exciting new development for us and we look forward to working with them and benefiting their visitors”.
