Library Management

The i-TEK RFID Library system is proposed to provide a friendly atmosphere to the librarians in having an efficient library management in place. The books tagged with RFID labels are used for automated circulation (self check-out and check-in), EAS(Electronic Article Surveillance), stock taking and searching of the books. The patron identification and access rights are also controlled by the RFID system.

Benefits:

  • Fully transparent stock control on all available books and Medias in the library.
  • The Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) feature offers a secure stock control system to ensure no books get “lost”. This feature is especially important for rare books or unique books, which should not get lost because of their value.
  • Due to the fact that RFID-labels can be identified (read) very easily (without line of sight, over a certain distance, several books simultaneously), the so-called self-check-out system can be used and this will save manpower and increases the attractiveness of the library.
  • Because the RFID-Library offers a fully controlled and categorized library stock, the
  • number of similar books can be reduced because the turn-around time of each book can be shortened drastically.
  • RFID-label stores data of the book and its system status that gives the possibility to
  • check the book without the database.
  • Though, that there is quite some cost savings possible, if and once all implementations are in place and fully in use, our RFID solution in a library however, can do and bring much more for the users (member and library attendant) because of its unique and additional features.
