  1. 1. A Tool To Library Security By Swapna Athavale & Swapna Bhide
  2. 2. Introduction RFID= radio frequency based technology+microchip technology Generic term of technologies- use radio waves to automatically identify people or object First used in the late 1960’s
  3. 3. Cntd… RFID – Libraries-1990 Singapore- 1st country to introduce RFID in libraries Rockfeller Uni.- New York- 1st academic lib.-U.S -1999 Farmington Community Library-1st public institution1999 • Hoogezand-Sappemeer ( Netherlands)-1st public lib.Europe-2001 • Most use of RFID technology : 1. U.S 2. U.K 3. Japan • • • •
  4. 4. Definition “ Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is the technology that is slated to replace barcodes in library applications. It is a form of identification that is contact less and does not require line of sight. The technology, though new to libraries, has been in use in other sectors for more than 20 years. The RFID tags are placed in books and generally covered with a property sticker. Antennas of different sizes, based on application are used to read the tags and manage the various library functions. The RFID solution is a revolutionary application of automatic identification and data capture 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”
  5. 5. RFID and Library Since Library staff performed various functions Helped library staff to protect library assets ( like books etc.) and its user friendly too. The application of RFID in Libraries can be well explained through diagram.
  6. 6. Advantages It provides effective & efficient benefit library detection. It has enhanced the security level collection. It has removed various repetitve work carried out by library staff. It has enabled self check in/ check out system.
  7. 7. Disadvantages High cost Easy to remove the tag from the book Exit gate sensor problem Possible to block radio signal by metallic content by the users
