UHF RFID library management system

RFID TECHNOLOGY

RFID Technology:

RFID means Radio Frequency Identification. RFID technology provides wireless identification of people, books or assets. RFID Tag is made up of an integrated antenna and memory.

In Library, a RFID tag is attached to each Book and Accession No. of the book is stored in Tag memory. An RFID Reader reads this Accession no. and sends to library software.

UHF – Ultra High Frequency Technology is most advanced technology with very high read range of 1-3 meters as compare to old HF and LF – technologies where read range in few Centimeters. UHF is low cost, high multi read, highly accurate with minimum mis-read. Therefore, UHF RFID technology preferred by us.

Tagging of Books

Tagging of Books:

RFID Tag is pasted on inner side of Front cover page of book & full page. Sticker is attached on it to hide it from patron and tagging is done using RFID reader. Tagging means writing RFID tag EPC code to Library Management Software & writing accession number to tag memory. With this now book is ready for all RFID operations. Patrons are issued UHF RFID ID cards.

Self check KIOSK

Self check KIOSK:

This offers facility of self- automated issue – return (Check In / out) of books to patrons.

Self Issue: Patron shows his RFID ID card to reader in Kiosk for automatic login. Now he puts books to be issued on RFID reader for issue. Books are issued to patron. RFID tag status is now quit & patron can take away the books through Security system at library exit gate without any theft alarm.

Self Return: For self return of books, patron just keeps the books on reader of Kiosk & the books are returned and patron loan is canceled.

While issue or return receipt is printed and SMS is sent to patron.

Shelf Management

Shelf Management:

The Shelf management system consist of mobile RFID reader integrated with library software. This facilitates almost instant searching of a desired book in Library & very fast library books verification (stock verification) without line of sight. The long read range of 3 meters makes stock verification & book searching a easy task.

For stock verification press scan button of Reader & move the reader across the shelves. Reader - gathers all the unique accession no. of books in the physical range of 1 meter. The collected accession nos. are transferred to Library Software & stock verification report is generated. It verifies 1,00,000 books per day.

For searching of a book, enter accession no. to searched in reader & sweep across shelves for searching. When a book is near by reader, a built-in beeper sounds to alert the librarians.

Anti Theft detection

Anti Theft detection:

The RFID Anti Theft Portals (Security system) are placed at exit gate of library & portal tracks books up-to 3 meters and would trigger the alarm with red flash lights when patron passes through gate with an un-issued books. It can detect multiple items at a time. This is most accurate security system with minimum false alarm.

Book Drop stations

Book Drop stations:

Patron can return Books any time - 24 x 7 - in RFID enabled Book Drop stations which are normally kept outside Library. Patron's loan is immediately canceled and SMS is sent to him. A Book return slip is printed & a beep is sounded, green light glows on successful book return.
