RG InfoTech offers RFID based Library Management System (LMS) which facilitates the fast issuing, reissuing and returning of books with the help of RFID enabled modules. It directly provides the book information and library member information to the library management system without any need for manual typing. It also provides monitoring and searching system. The complete solution consists of many features that can reduce a lot of human error, loss of books, issuance, reissue, return and other customization.
RFID Library Management System
RG InfoTech Solutions being the prominent leader of RFID products and solutions have come up with RFID library management system or RFID library automation solution for schools, college, and other educational institutes. We develop and provides RFID library management solution application which is a one-time investment; simple to set up and which can be used as a standalone package. This is an application that can be customized as per the need of the client and his usage for better management of the library with the next to zero human error.
Our RFID library management system consists of self-check-in / check out kiosk, Book dropbox, anti-theft gates, shelf management, tagging and handheld reader for books and koha software for the library management solution.
Advantages of RFID Library Management System
Self-Rapid check-out / check-in Kiosk
RFID library automation reduces the amount of total time required to perform the complete process either. The most significant time savings are attributable that information can be read from RFID tags much faster as compared with barcodes and also multiple at the same time that too with a distance. While initially unreliable, the anti-collision algorithm that allows an entire stack to be check-out or check-in now appears to be working well.
The RFID readers are highly reliable with the RFID tags within the books. The RFID library systems claim an almost 100 percent detection rate using RFID tags.
There is no false alarm than with older technologies once an RFID system is properly tuned.
RFID systems encode the circulation status on the RFID tag. This is done by designating a bit as the “theft” (EAS) bit and turning it off at the time of check-out and on at the time of check-in. If the material that has not been properly check-out is taken past the exit sensors, an immediate alarm is triggered.
One of the biggest advantages of RFID Based Library Management system is its ability to scan books on the shelves without tipping them out or removing them, with a distance using the RFID handheld reader. A hand-held inventory reader can be moved rapidly across a shelf of books to read all of the unique identification information. Also, using wireless technology, it is possible not only to update the inventory but also to identify items which are not placed at the designated place or which is missing from which shelf.
Long tag life
These RFID tags being used for labeling the books are last longer than barcodes because nothing comes into contact with them. These tags also cannot be tampered in normal condition until and unless someone has intentionally done the damage to it. Most RFID vendors claim a minimum of 100,000 transactions before a tag may need to be replaced.
Automated materials handling (optional)
Another application of RFID technology is automated materials handling. This includes conveyor and sorting systems that can move library materials and sort them by category into separate bins or onto separate carts. This significantly reduces the amount of staff time required to ready materials for re-shelving.
This RFID library management system is being used widely in schools, colleges, and other educational institutions which now has become the part of campus automation only. Through this RFID library automation, the entire track record of the student can be kept for further issuance of the books depending on the previous records. If the complete campus is RFID automated then with a single RFID card ( ID card) all the records can be easily at one place only.
This application also can be used at various events and for promotional activities. This application can be easily installed at any site and users can use it for any type of cashless transactions by using with a compatible card reader. The card which will then be read or interrogated by readers installed at the event venue. These are also used in fashion, is immensely useful in event management, right from regulating the number of transactions to the total amount of transaction, so that the analyzing can be done for better management to streamlining crowd management and transactions at the event venue for marketing purpose as well. The required degree of customization and branding tweaks can make the use of this cashless application is an extremely rewarding and satisfying experience.
RFID library management solution is one the best way to maintain, organize and handle countless books systematically. This system completely automates all your library’s activities. You can find books in an instant, issue/reissue books quickly and manage all the data efficiently and orderly using this system. It also provides instant and accurate data regarding any type of book, thereby saving a lot of time and efforts.
