LIBRARY MANAGEMENT

The RFID Solution is a revolutionary application of automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) technology. In a library environment, RFID technology resembles a traditional barcode system in that it provides a means of assigning an ID to an item and reading that ID to perform circulation transactions or to take inventory. But while RFID technology resembles a traditional barcode system in application, the HCL RFID Solution is far superior in performance—plus it offers built-in security.

A library stacked with books and other information dissemination processes, has a physical presence. A library is an institution of knowledge acquisition and learning; it provides invaluable service to its members, patrons and to a wider local community.

RFID technology is not just there to tags books and other library assets; it will provide a comprehensive route for enhancing all library services and upgrade operations for everyone concerned with the library.

Solution details: With RFID applications in libraries, all the library assets, namely books, manuscripts, CDS, DVDs, videos, audio cassettes, etc. have to be embedded with RFID tags. The RFID readers and antennas are placed conveniently where library users will have maximum access. In addition there has to be computers that are managing and controlling all the library activities.

Thus, in a library, an RFID system consists of:

A smart label or a tag.
A reader .
An encoder or a printer .
A middleware .
An application software .
A host system or a server .

Application software:

But while RFID technology resembles a traditional barcode system in application, the HCL RFID Solution is far superior in performance—plus it offers built-in security.

RFID application software is generally a browser-based management interface for centralized monitoring. The software enables safe, secure and highly efficient movement of library items by asset tracking and prevents loss or tampering.

Tags and readers: The microchips on the RFID tags can be programmed electronically. Similarly a reader (technically known as an interrogator) has to be programmed to send and receive correct information from a tag.

All of the RFID tags used in libraries are passive types of tags.

Generally data stored on the tags have the following options:

Item id .
theft bit .
shelving information .
date of circulation .

Readers are RF detectors that can read tags to obtain the information stored within them. It has an antenna that sends and receives signals. A reader generates an RF field. When a tag passes through the field, the information stored on the chip in the tag is decoded by the reader and sent to the server.

There is software in each reader to facilitate communication with the server and therefore automate the whole library system.

Benefits to library management:

Uncompromised security within the library .
Efficient collection management system (can be located suitably and made 24×7) .
Uncompromised collection security .
Flexible staff schedules .
Labor saving methods free the staff to help customers .
Higher customer/patron satisfaction levels .
Improved inter-library cooperation .
Better preservation of inventory because of less handling by staff .
Same security and labeling formats for all items such as books, CDs and DVDs, hence better management of databases .

Benefits for library staff:

Time saving devices free them to help customer better.
Labor saving devices free them from doing repetitive, physically stressful tasks.
Can have flexible working schedules .

Benefits for library patrons:

Self check-in and self check-out facilities .
Check-in and check-out of all types of items (books, audio tapes, video tapes, CDs, DVDs, etc.) at the same locations .
More staff available for assistance .
Quicker service such as payment of fees, fines, etc.
Better inter-library facilities, more efficient reservation facilities, etc .
Faster and accurate re¯shelving means patrons can find items where they should be, hence quicker and more satisfying service .
Height adjustable self check-in/out tables are liked by children and physically disabled persons who use the library

STUDENT TRACKING

Nowadays, crimes always occur. This scenario not involves by adults only, but also happen to children. Parents concern more about serious cases such as missing children and abduction. The crime also involve by school children have been reported in newspapers. Although the school have guards that posted on school grounds 24 hours a day, that simply not enough to monitor the student. To overcome these problems, the authorized need to provide additional security measure.

Children who travel to and from school by themselves without monitor by their parents are exposed to danger along the way. Besides that, parents usually received late information if anything happen to their children such as accidents or involved in criminals.

What is RFID based School Management System (SMS)

School Management System is a combination of different kinds of comprehensive software and hardware which works as an automatic attendance system for students and school. Additionally it works as a tracking system for parents of students through sms facility whenever student reaches to any of the strategic locations like school bus, school main entrance, classroom, canteen etc.This provides an additional trustworthy high end security system not only for students and parents but also for schools to build a brand in such a competitive era.

Solution Process flow of school management (Different steps of the solutions)

Boarding the school bus:

This is the first step where system starts functioning. The moment child boards the school bus fitted with RFID reader, It records his/her presence in the bus along with location and time.

Entering the School Premises:

The moment bus enters the school campus, the system automatically registers the entry of students inside the bus. But once they enter the school building then only it marks them as present in the school.

Tracking inside the school campus:

The movement of student is recorded at all sensitive points inside the school campus with time stamp.

Leaving the school Premises:

At the end of the day when students board the bus again to go to their respective homes the system marks the exit of students as they are leaving the school campus.

Disembarking the Bus:

When student get out of the bus at his/her bus stops. The system marks it as end of the day for the student and records this event with time and location at which student has gone out.
