With the continuous improvement of readers' requirements for library service quality. In the library management service, improving service quality, strengthening internal management and improving work efficiency become important work optimization. RFID technology can reduce the workload of staff, combined with RFID system to achieve automatic book circulation management. RFID can realize automatic book borrowing / returning, guarantee the security of book information, and improve the circulation efficiency of book borrowing / returning. RFID technology is applied in intelligent library management.
Build the network environment of RFID intelligent library collection management system and deploy the corresponding RFID hardware equipment. It is used to identify, track and protect all the materials of the library. Through the RFID system, it can realize the functions of borrowing and returning books, sorting books, searching books, and checking collections. It can greatly improve the efficiency of library data processing. The emergence, development, maturity and wide application of RFID intelligent library management system completely solve the problems that need to be solved at present.
Application of RFID technology in Intelligent Library Management
RFID is a kind of non-contact intelligent and automatic identification technology. It mainly identifies the target object by transmitting, receiving and processing RF signals, so as to obtain and process data and realize intelligent and automatic processing. After the adoption of RFID technology, the circulation of library materials will be greatly improved. RFID system can support borrowing / returning multiple books at the same time, which greatly improves the efficiency of book management and facilitates the work of staff.
In recent years, with the maturity of RFID technology, the decline of tag price, the acceleration of reading speed and the improvement of security performance, RFID technology is gradually more and more widely used. RFID technology is not only a simple bar code substitute, its systematic application will bring revolutionary influence to the whole workflow, traditional service and management mode of the library, and then lead to new business process reengineering, which will promote the development of library automation and further enhance the service function. Compared with the traditional bar code plus magnetic stripe method, its advantages are mainly shown in the following four aspects:
1、 It improves the efficiency of borrowing and returning books. When borrowing and returning books, the traditional bar code and magnetic stripe technology still requires the staff to open the title page of the book, find the bar code, and then scan and demagnetize, so the borrowing and returning efficiency is relatively low. After the adoption of RFID technology, the RFID intelligent tag reader can read information in a non-contact way, and with the help of the anti-collision function of RFID technology, it can read and identify multiple books at the same time, so as to improve the borrowing efficiency and reader reception ability.
2、 The service level has been improved. Through the self-service peripheral equipment, readers can find the shelf number of books in the network system, quickly and accurately find the books they need, and go through the procedures of borrowing and returning books by themselves, which brings convenience to readers. The library can readjust the saved human resources, so that more librarians can turn from the traditional management to serve readers or other value-added services.
3、 The collection management has been strengthened. In the open shelf library, as a library management staff, it usually needs to spend a lot of energy to find books and periodicals with disordered shelves and wrong shelves, and to classify them. The workload and work intensity are relatively large. By inputting the shelf information of books into RFID system, the staff can find the disordered book information in time by using the assistant reader in the process of daily inspection of the whole shelf, which makes the work of shelving and the whole shelf very easy. In addition, the use of RFID technology can also simplify the book inventory work of librarians.
4、 Strengthen the ability of anti-theft monitoring. The traditional magnetic strip anti-theft system often has many false theft situations, such as false alarm, false alarm due to unclean degaussing and so on. The RFID access control system can judge whether the checked books are illegal carrying or missing books in borrowing records through the integrated reader, and then judge whether to make an alarm action, reducing the rate of missing report and false report.
The use of RFID system technology in library is the main development trend, and it has also become an important information technology foreshadowing for the realization of intelligent, automatic and efficient library management. RFID book management can not only track and manage book resources, but also protect the safety of library books. In the management of book resources, staff can quickly and efficiently manage book borrowing / returning through simple operation, so as to realize the rapid circulation of book resources and data information.
