RFID Implementation in the Library

The library has implemented the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) System in the year 2019. It is the best automated library automation system used across the world and is very effective in managing library resources. Some of the major benefits of the RFID system include self-check-out/check-in facility of books by the users, to control theft, to track the misplaced reading material, sorting, inventory accuracy, stock verification procedures, security control, material handling, video surveillance, people counter, Smart Card issuance, etc. RFID is a combination of radio-frequency-based technology and microchip technology. The information contained on microchips in the tags affixed to library materials is read using radio frequency technology regardless of item orientation or alignment. RFID helps to reduce valuable staff time spent on scanning barcodes while charging and discharging items.
