  • 1. Radio Frequency Identification Technology in LibrariesValdosta State UniversityMLIS 7505
    By
    Stephanie Coney
  • 2. RFID Technology
    RFID works with a transponder or tag and a reader. These two units work together to identify the object. The transponder is attached to the object and the reader is stationary.
  • 3. The 4 devices to RFID Technology
    RFID tags
    Readers or Coupler
    Antenna
    Server
  • 4. RFID Tags
    Are flexible, paper-thin smart labels, approximately 2x2 inches in size; each tag contains an etched antenna and a tiny chip that is both readable and writable
    Are electronically programmed with unique information
    Can store vital bibliographical data including a unique accession number to identify each item of your collection
    There are three types of tags: “read only”, “WORM”, and “read/write”
  • 5. Reader/Coupler
    Is composed of radio frequency modules, a control unit, and an antenna to read electronic tags via radio frequency communication
    Used to communicate between the tags and the server
    Sends information in two directions
  • 6. Antenna
    Used to produce radio frequency waves that initiate tags as they pass through an activation field
    Is able to read multiple tags at one time
  • 7. Server
    An important part of the RFID technology
    Links the coupler and the library’s automation system
  • 8. Advantages to RFID Technology in Libraries
    Speedy Circulation Operations
    Self-Charging/Discharging
    Highly Reliable
    High-Speed Inventory Control
    Automated Handling of Material
    Long Life-RFID
