RFID For Library Management
FID technology is a perfect match for libraries and archives. It improves the information
processes, increases efficiency, staff productivity and customer service. It can enhance
existing barcode systems by providing additional features such as automatic c
return whilst adding security against theft. RFID reduces lost books and creates savings in
time spent searching for books shelved in incorrect locations. Stock takes can be reduced to a
simple walk down an isle as the RFID tags are read whilst
they are still on the shelf.
RFID Devices are widely apply for the Libraries and Archives system due to it’s long
read range, speed of reading and reduced cost. All of the benefits make the V
Technology the ideal choice for your Library appl
UHF RFID benefits in Libraries
Self Check out
Allowing faster check out as more books can be read at the same time.
Auto sorting in returns
Provides sorting of books as they are returned.
Due to the long read ranges of UHF
readers, stock takes can achieved by
walking down the aisle, the RFID reader reads the tags on the books without
being taken off the shelf, the system can warn if a book looks to be out of
If a book is not found in its correct locat
ion, a hand held PDA reader can be
used to search for the book. Read ranges of up to 1.5
2 meters can be
achieved with the PDA readers, this makes searching quick and easy.
RFID brings an added feature of security. Gateways of 2.5 meters can
achieved reducing the incidence of stolen books. UHF readers can read 100’s
of tags a second so many items can be checked as they are going through the
security gates rather than only
RFID system configuration
Library automation with RFID Technology is used all over the world
Each books are fixed with RFID Labels which carry stored data,
when the s
canner finds a right book, a built
in beeper sounds. It is also possible to sort
several books at a time. If any book from the list is detected, the scan will sound. Thus,
search process will significantly speed up. And the Fixed readers in shelf are trans
to an inventory database to library EPR system.
Library Security System:
Library staff is alerted immediately when un
passes through the theft detection gates.
Librarian uses the reader to scan tags of returned books; the labels in the
articles are read automatically. To return a book a reader does not need to have a library
card with him, as each book has its unique ID number. No errors can occur when
OR: when installing automatic check
out system, a reader puts a book in the
drop, and when a book is inside and can’t be taken out, its tag is read automatically
and the data about book return is then automatically downloaded to the database. The
urn status is displayed on the screen.
