Signup Center is a computer reservation system which is intended to save time of refereence librarians or other library staff consumed in just signing people up to use public computers. lets the public sign themselves up using their own library cards. A patron chooses from the menu which type of computer he/she wants to use, then scans in his/her barcode and that's it. The computer assigns the patron to the next available computer of that type, shows this on the screen, and (printer versions) prints out a receipt which includes the patron's name, computer number, time period, and also includes a statement of the library's policies and rules regarding computer use (printer versions).
The system could also be used by internet cafe's, or any organization which makes use of computers on a continuing basis to a particular public.
