Library management system
Auto check in/check out
No need to stand in long queue for issuing books. Just take the book, enter details, and check out.
Scan books without removing them from the shelf with handheld reader. Read all the inventory information, and find which books are out of stock.
Tag all the books with RFID. If book is not properly checked out and taken at exit gate, an alarm triggers.
Along with self check out, the patrons can also use Book-drops to easily submit the issued books without human intervention.

RFID is the cutting edge technology used in the library management system which are replacing decade old technologies like EM, and bar-codes. RFID in libraries makes the experience of patrons better, reduces human intervention when accessing information. The most important benefit of RFID over EM and bar-codes in library tracking system is that RFID is really very fast in circulation and check in and check out process. RFID can increase the efficiency by 50%.
RFID systems are also very reliable. Libraries implementing RFID can assure 100% detection rates of its inventory. The system is also very accurate as there will be no false alarms. Handling is completely automated, as it includes a conveyor belt and sorting systems that can move books and sort them into different categories and finally put them into different containers. This reduces librarian’s time and effort. Maintaining the inventory of books also becomes very easy as books don’t need to be removed or tipped to be scanned. You just need to scan with handheld RFID readers and all the information of books on the shelf will be updated in the database. Finally, the RFID tags last long as nothing comes in contact with them.
