Library Outsourcing Twitter Competition

Started as The Tagging Team, we have been working in close partnership with academic and public libraries since 1987. Initially, the company became known for providing EM insertion services. However, since the rapid uptake of the more modern and efficient RFID technology, The Tagging Team has amassed an unsurpassed level of experience and expertise within the field of RFID tag insertion.

Since our launch in 2010, Library Outsourcing Ltd has already developed an enviable reputation for quality, on time delivery and overall excellence from the initial contact through to the completion date. Building on the excellent skill base provided by The Tagging Team Ltd, Library Outsourcing Ltd has already completed several major contracts in the area of 1 million items each, plus numerous smaller specialized projects.

Today, we have reached the point, where we have tagged more than 22 million books and gained an impeccable reputation in the library world in Europe and the UK. However, we didn’t stop there. We have become the most reliable and successful provider of cataloguing, library and book cleaning and libassist services.



Now, at Library Outsourcing, we are looking to expand our services even wider to address modern library needs. So, we are asking you, the library managers, librarians, library assistants and even library users and supporters, to help us provide the service your local, school, university or public library really needs.

What service would your library benefit most from? What do you need help with?

Is there a daily task which is difficult to manage with your staffing levels, or perhaps a large project which requires planning, manpower and the relevant skills but you simply don’t have the time or the manpower? Only those people on the frontline of library services really know what’s needed, so that’s who we’re asking.

Therefore, we decided to launch a competition, asking libraries to suggest a service for us to add to our existing services.
The rules are simple, go to the @Lib_Outsourcing Twitter page and tweet the service your library would find useful with the hashtag #LibraryService.
The library with the most retweeted service ideas will win a £250 Amazon voucher.
