RFID for Libraries

Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) has come a long way to provide basic components to create a degree of automation in libraries. More and more libraries are adopting RFID systems for automation and security needs. The use of RFID reduces the amount of time required to perform basic library operations like issue and return of the items. RFID also ensures that the processing is faster as compared to a barcode based system because there is no line of sight required in case of RFID system and also multiple items can be read in one go. This also helps in faster stock taking and inventory operations using a suitable hand held reader.

Using RFID gates at the library exit, it is also possible to partially bring down the cases of unintentional book removals from the library. However for a truly covert library security CELECT only recommends Tattle Tape Systems.
