Bringing Next-Gen RFID
Automation for Library
Management
Present Pain Areas in Library Management

Tedious inventory taking process.

Book issue & returns to/from patrons takes considerable time since it is a
manual paper based process – patron queuing problems.

Lack of visibility to book availability and their location as inventory taking is
done once a year.

Unauthorized movement of books outside the library by non-members.
Orizin Proposed Solution – RFID TECHNOLOGY

RFID is a wireless technology that is being used for tracking, security and
inventory taking process of books.

With this technology every book whether stationary or moving can be
networked and identified without the need of line of sight.

All communication happens through two type of sensors called reader and
tag/label

Tags are tiny sensors that are pasted on books. They have a unique
identification number making the book on which it is placed ‘unique’ and
also some limited memory to store necessary data like book id, UID no etc.

Reader is a device that can sense tags around its field, communicate with
them and transmit the tag’s data to the LAN/internet
