Since the mid-nineties, libraries have been using some systems to help them manage their collections, upgrade their services and protect their holdings, based on the growing development of ICTs. These systems include barcode systems through magnetic tape systems and RFID systems, which are the most up-to-date Group management and protection systems are currently also the technological alternative to barcodes and magnetic tapes. These systems offer many modern library services such as self-borrowing and Use in inventory procedures and the protection of groups … etc.
RFID is a term for radio frequency identification, a general term for technologies that use radio waves for automatic identification.
Identify or track the tracing of different entities and objects automatically, and there are several ways to distinguish entities that use RFID technology, but most commonly store a serial number for the identification of the vessel and perhaps other information on a chip chip attached to the antenna antenna so that this antenna can send this information to the RFID reader Reader, which in turn converts the radio waves coming from the chip to digital information that the computer can recognize and process.
Components of the RFID system:
Three components of the RFID system consists of a basic, namely:
Crowns – RFID Tag
Reader – RFID Reader
Server or database -Database / Host System
The library’s holdings of different types, whether national or academic libraries, private, public or specialized, are the most valuable assets of the library, and the more libraries can make these acquisitions easily accessible to the beneficiaries, the more it benefits the library and invest in its own holdings.
The International Center for Libraries and Information Centers is dedicated to providing security and library traffic management techniques. These technologies combine protection and self-service capabilities, and provide effort and time to both desktops.
The International Center for Libraries and Information Centers offers a range of solutions in the management and security of vessel traffic by providing RFID devices from fixed gates, portable and portable readers, self-return books, automated inventory, digitizing books etc.
RFID systems provide many new applications for libraries and help to perform many of the burdensome operations and routines of the library staff and mention of these applications include:
Self-loan services Self circulation units
Re-blood self-service Self return units:
Sorting and sorting of returned items Sorting units:
Protect library collection Theft detection:
Manage collections Collection management
Identifying vessel locations Identifying lost or missing items
Bowls arranged on the shelves Checking Shelf Order
