The current project presents the hardware design, implementation, and testing of a system for library management and attendance information based on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology. The proposed system replaces the barcode-based scanners and Electromagnetic (EM) strips used for object identification.
The proposed RFID-based library management system is implemented with a passive tag attached to the book. The tag stores electronic information about the book such as ISBN number, book title, name of the author, and publisher. An advantage of the proposed system over barcode-based and EM-based systems is that it is independent of object alignment or orientation; therefore, it does not require a continuous line of sight for object detection. Additionally, using RFID tags with read/write capabilities, tags can be reconfigured and information can easily be updated. The proposed system is easier in inventorying, book tracking, material handling, and other essential library transactions.
