RFID tag play an important role in intelligent library
Sep 25, 2018

RFID is radio frequency identification technology (Rsdio Frequency Nenttfication), also known as electronic tagging. It is a network system that transmits specific identification information in a non-contact, non-visual and highly reliable manner. Rfid technology has only started in the library industry for only a decade, but from the initial simple self-service borrowing books to the realization of a variety of intelligent functions, the speed of technological development is very rapid. Especially with traditional barcode and magnetic stripe technology, it has obvious advantages.

Important Technologies in Intelligent Libraries - RFID, Radio Frequency Identification Technology

1. Quick self-help borrowing and promotion of humanized service. The traditional bar code is a contact-type identification method, which is mainly used by the staff to perform a single book operation, which greatly limits the speed of borrowing books. RFID is a non-contact sensing and identification data, which can complete the borrowing of multiple books at one time, greatly improving the efficiency of borrowing books, avoiding waiting for the readers and saving readers time. At the same time, since the reader self-help borrowing and returning operation, it gives the reader more autonomy, reduces the contradiction between the reader's direct contact with the staff and the work error, and also makes it easier to protect the reader's reading privacy.

2. Intelligent management to change the focus of library work. The main functions of RFID are self-help borrowing, automatic sorting of books, and intelligent inventory sorting of bookshelves. Machines are used to replace the repeated work of librarians, which greatly reduces the workload of librarians and enables some librarians to perform simple mechanical operations. Freed up to engage in reader consulting services or information services or other work. It is beneficial for most library workers to realize the transition from “bookkeepers” to “information service providers” to better stabilize the library staff.

3. Quickly count the books to improve the accuracy of book search. The open book management method is convenient for readers, and the book data distortion caused by various factors such as dislocation, chaos, loss, etc., also has a great impact on the readers' accurate search of books, and the timely and complete inventory of books is also A very difficult job in book management. With its unique non-contact and one-time reading of multiple books, RFID makes the book inventory work simple and convenient by quickly scanning the RFID tags on the bookshelf, with accurate book data and positioning. Improve the efficiency of finding books. At the same time, the RFID reader query function can also assist in finding misplaced books. As long as the target book data to be searched is loaded, a long-distance search is performed, which solves the problem in the traditional book management work
