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