B Library is a growing organism. As it grows in size the problems associated with the maintenance and security of the documents also grows (Narayanan et al. , 2012).
To solve the problems of arranging and searching documents, books, space and time librarians used different techniques (e. g. , bar-codes) to digitize the documents and share over network. Bar-codes have served the librarians and libraries for a long time, and now it is getting replaced by RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification).
C Radio frequency identification (RFID) falls under the category of automatic data collection (ADC) technologies. It is used to describe a system that transfers the identity of an object or person wirelessly, using radio waves. RFID was invented in 1969, patented in 1973, first used in harsh industrial environment in 1980s’, and standards were presented in 2001. It is the latest addition of technology to be used in the libraries for a combination of automation and security activities in the well maintenance of documents either inside the library or goes out-of library.
RFID System Components RFID system has the following key components: RFID tags that are electronically programmed with unique information. A reader connected to the Library Information System. An antenna connected to the reader. A server to receive and decode the information and to communicate with the automated library system. D Problem in Existing System Today most of the libraries are operated manually and staff intensive. There is a large amount of routine procedures that is difficult for searching a specific book from data arranged in documents/registers.
Introduction Library management system is an aspect or branch of information management system that keeps the records of both the library users, books in the library and the activities that is going on in the library, activities like borrowing books and returning books. Information management in general is the collection and management of information from one or more source and distribution of the ...
Books are often stolen and are not returned on time. Existing system use Barcode Technology for identification that is very cost effective and require a direct line of sight, using laser technology. Does not have read/write memory so we are going to implement latest RFID technology in our college library. 2. Proposed System The proposed system is based on RFID readers and passive RFID tags that are able to electronically store information that can be read with the help of the RFID reader.
RFID based Library Management System would allow fast transaction flow and will make easy to handle the issue and return of books from the library without much intervention of manual book keeping. This system will also calculate the corresponding fine associated with the time period of the absence of the book from the library database. Students will be notified about return date through E-mail. 3. 1 Main Modules Include following steps: 3. Expected Outcome System will remove manual book keeping of records Traceability of books
Less time consumption as line of sight and manual interaction are not needed for RFID-tag reading To minimize the manual errors To provide fast searching of books Member will be notified about return date through E-mail 4.
