Library Automation
Library Automation will cater to the day to day in-house functioning of any library. The objective of this software is to completely automate the operations of the library. The library catalogue or index to the collection forms the base for most of the library activities such as acquisition, reference, bibliographic service, inter-library loan etc. The Library users can have simultaneous access to the same database containing the on-line catalog of library items.
From the library staff point of view the cumbersome job of printing the cards and their subsequent filing gets eliminated. Also, it conserves space and saves stationery. This software can handle the entire house keeping operations of the library such as acquisition, circulation and serial control, thus, creating a network within the library or becoming part of the existing network of the institution.
Networking of computers within an organisation helps the users to browse the cataloguing system from any of the workstation / terminal.

• Can be applied to wide range of libraries of Schools, Colleges, Institutes, Research Organisations, Corporate Houses, and Resource Centers etc.
What is RFID Solutions ?
In recent years automatic identification procedures (Auto ID) have become very popular in many service industries, purchasing and distribution logistics, industry, manufacturing companies and material flow systems. Automatic identification procedures exist to provide information about people, animals, goods and products. The technically optimal solution would be the storage of data in a silicon chip. The most common form of electronic data carrying device in use in everyday life is the chip card based upon a contact field (telephone chip card, bank cards). However, the mechanical contact used in the chip card is often impractical. A contact less transfer of data between the data carrying device and its reader is far more flexible. In the ideal case, the power required to operate the electronic data carrying device would also be transferred from the reader using contact less technology. Because of the procedures used for the transfer of power and data, contact less ID systems are called RFID systems (Radio Frequency Identification).The system provides an intelligent way for libraries to maximize their investment in RFID with optimized memory and built-in EAS features.
Radio Frequency Identification - RFID RFID system consists of following components:
• The transponder, which is located on the object to be identified. It is also known as RFID labels.
• The detector or reader, which, depending upon design and the technology used, may be a read or write/read device, known as check-in check-out terminals.
• Gate Antennas Software
The RFID Solution has following features:
• Line of sight not necessary
• Memory capacity 264 bit - 2 k bit
• Simultaneous reading of several labels (anti collision)
• Programmable.
• Reading range up to gate width of 1m.
• Metal surfaces require special labels.
• RFID tags replace both the bar code and EAS (anti-theft) device allowing for much faster conversion of library materials in new branches. In existing libraries, RFID tags can co-exist with existing EM anti-theft systems.
• Check-out stations can be automated with easy, intuitive interfaces.
• Book returns can be automated with check-in, EAS activation, and systems updates completed simultaneously in the book return chute.
• Fast on-the-shelf inventory allows for much better accuracy in collection management and increased book turns resulting in reduced book purchasing. This allows libraries to expand their collections without increasing their budgets.
