P.V. Supa’s Automated Material Handling System (AMHS) is a truly modular structure with each module having a different function within the system. By choosing the right modules, the AMHS can be designed to fill the exact needs of a library. This modular construction also allows for future growth by the ability to add or reconfigure the system with the addition of sorting modules or inlets, you can scale the system to meet your specific needs from 5 to 255 sorts!

Our dedicated staff will work with you to design a system to meet the specific requirements for your library. Budget, space, and library objectives are all considered during the planning and our library trained staff and engineers will be there to guide you through the process.

While designing the AMHS, P.V. Supa considered a library’s logistical needs. The Libretto AMHS is of modular construction, each module being responsible for a specific function in the AMHS. The modular structure allows for the additional sorting positions or inlets, and there are several different add-ons to choose from, which will help handling returned material and improve workplace ergonomics.

Libretto software

Libretto software has been in use worldwide for more than a decade. It provides a clear and easy to use interface for library patrons to operate the AMHS device and provides easy use and local control for library staff. Libretto has an easy and flexible connection to the library’s Integrated Library System using standard SIP-protocol and has unlimited choices for sorting the returned materials.


Libretto can use either the sorting data from a library system or the sorting rules can be based on information returned in SIP messages. Libretto can handle an unlimited amount of sorting categories, and is easily adjusted by library staff at any time.

Program options

PV-Messaging is used to distribute information from P.V. Supa’s units via Message Board software to the library staff stations, staff mobile phones with text messages, or via email. PV-Messaging sends information about different situations that require staff to take notice, or about possible errors in the system. This messaging system allows the device to be left unattended, and will notify staff when situations arise that require staff intervention.
