RFID Based Library
Management System


As the libraries are constantly burdened with handling an increasing load of intellectual capital assets in terms of thousands of volumes of books, journals, historical archives, journals, thesis etc while managing a huge user base, there is a growing need for having an efficient technology solution that can productively manage the library resources as well as cater to the interests of library users and librarians in a secured timely manner. With the proliferation of advanced technology solutions transforming the modern-day information management, most organizations are seeking digital library solutions where information is stored and made available in a digital format allowing on-demand access to updated information, data preservation, real-time information sharing, library member access management and fully automated secured library management. SBL’s RFID-based library management system is a RFID technology enabled modules and handheld readers based comprehensive automation solution for libraries for books issuing, reissuing, returning, monitoring, and searching system for the library members and librarians, directly feeding the book and library member information to the library management system. The physical location and movement of library books can be tracked across the gates for any discrepancies and secured via alarm through the system.
The RFID library system streamlines diverse tasks such as re-shelving, circulation etc, and can replace the existing library barcode system. The solution offers cost-effective technology over the barcode system by eliminating the human labour cost necessary for tasks such as check-in, check-out, inventory holds, etc. Using on-chip data storage and reprogrammable memory our solution records the location of books and also allows for auto-detection of unauthorized items going outside the library and eliminates theft possibilities. Besides, the system can be easily integrated with automated material handling units and further supports locating specific items using RFID-based handheld readers.
