RFID Solution for (Client)
Overview

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is the technology that is slated to replace barcodes in library applications. It is a form of identification that is contact-less and does not require line of sight. The technology, though new to libraries, has been in use in other sectors for more than 20 years. The RFID tags are placed in books and generally covered with a property sticker. Antennas of different sizes, based on application, are used to read the tags and manage the various library functions. The RFID Solution is a revolutionary application of automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) technology. In a library environment, RFID technology resembles a traditional barcode system in that it provides a means of assigning an ID to an item and reading that ID to perform circulation transactions or to take inventory. But while RFID technology resembles a traditional barcode system in application, the HCL RFID Solution is far superior in performance—plus it offers built-in security.

How the HCL RFID Solution Works
HCL has partnered with leading RFID hardware security providers, leading manufacturers of RFID hardware, to bring you the latest in RFID technology. A standard RFID system consists of four main parts:

RFID Tags - Flexible, paper-thin smart labels that are applied directly to library items. Each RFID tag contains a tiny chip, which is both readable and writable and can store information to identify items in your collection. In library applications, it also stores a security bit and if needed, information to support sorting systems.

Passive (this is what mostly used now)   Tags are inactive until the reader’s interrogation signal “wakes” them up Cheap, but short range only

Semi-passive   On-board battery, but cannot initiate communication Can serve as sensors, collect information from environment: for example, “smart dust” for military applications  More expensive, longer range

Active  On-board battery, can initiate communication

RFID Member Card: Library members were given membership card enabled with RFID chip inside. Member details are printed on plastic sheet which is pasted on the RFID Member Card. Member has to use/bring along with the RFID Tag enabled books/resources for the issue/return of the same.

omitted by the RFID Tags. The devices are responsible for the security and circulation of resources as programmed in the server, it will alarm if the resource is taken out without proper process.

Database: all the information related to RFID tags and corresponding information about the resource/books/member is stored in the database which is stored in a centralized location a PC or a Server. The software installed in the server verifies the tag reading captured by the Reader (Transceiver).

Advantages of an RFID System over a Traditional Barcode System

The HCL RFID Solution provides numerous advantages over traditional barcode systems. Here are just a few of the benefits:

Features Read more than one item at a time
Read while item is moving Programmable Line of site read not required Life guarantee (100,000 reads) Sturdy in harsh environments Might want to consider use of the term “environmentally hardened”, this term is becoming more common place in USA electronics markets. (I am not certain of global acceptance of this term) Able to resist water damage Built‐in security Inventory tool without handling items Able to locate specific items on shelves Use with borrower self checks units Use with automated sorting and handling systems

Particulars Physical Size

RFID Tags range in size from a postage stamp to a book. The aspect ratio of a Tag's length vs width is very flexible and not a significant factor for the Reader.

Barcode Bar codes are larger than the smallest tag and very sensitive to the aspect ratio for presentation to a scanner. The ratio of a bar code's length vs width is critical to its operation. Bar Codes have unlimited shelf life but are subject to degradation with handling.

Lifespan

Tags have no moving parts and are embedded in protective material for an indestructible case and multi-year lifespan. Tags may be placed in extreme environments and perform to specification. They are very robust to handling, sensitive to environment, and generally degrade once used, stored or handled in a non-office environment.

Harsh Environments

Product Codes

Digital data is stored on the Tag and provides for a significant capability to encode: 1) Tag originator 2) User data as needed by the segment or application 3) Serial number as needed by the segment/application Major vertical markets like

Page 13 of 33

Proposal for RFID Security & Circulation Solution for (client)

Retail have standards which are excellent at coding product type and manufacturer. Additional information beyond these basic parameters is not feasible because the size of the Bar Code becomes too large.
Counterfeiting Tags are produced with a unique identity code (UIC) or serial number from the manufacturer. This is embedded digitally on the microchip and may not be changed, therefore, making them extremely resistant to counterfeiting. Dynamic Updates Bar Codes may easily be duplicated and attached to products and are, therefore, easily counterfeited.

Tags may be written to and offer on board memory to retain information. This feature may be used to store a product calibration history, preventive maintenance, etc. Updates may be made within the blink of an eye and automatically without

Once a Bar Code is printed it remains frozen. The Code and the process of attaching the BC is not supportive of real time updates. It is a labor intensive process to update any information on a BC once printed.

and The combination of UIC (unique identification code), user data, serial number and on-board memory makes it possible to track, recall, or document the life span of a single item. For example, with livestock this means that the birthplace of the animal, its vaccine history, feed lots, slaughter house, processor, etc may all be tracked. This kind of information supports a complete pedigree for an item attached to the Tag. RFID - Offers a range from inches to hundreds of feet and does not require line of sight. This means that individual Tags placed within a carton, packed in a box and stored on a pallet may be read. You do not

BC is limited to an entire class of products and unable to drill down to a unique item. It is not feasible to recall, track or document a single item.

Scanning

The Bar Code must be presented to the scanner in an orientation and distance that is very limited. Individual reading requires that each box on a pallet be opened and the item pulled for presentation to the scanner.

sight to read the code. RFID - Standards have algorithms to support simultaneous reading of Tags at one time. High volume Tags are currently 25 cents each with the potential to continue to drop per the experience curve. High volume bar codes are less then a penny. In this scenario the labor savings from items like physical counts, etc. give RFID greater feasibility. Yes

RFID System Components and Applications
In a basic RFID system; tags, antennas and a controllers are used to read the tags affixed to each item in your collection. At various administrative points within your library, you can implement specific read/write stations, each of which uses an RFID reader:

Page 16 of 33

Proposal for RFID Security & Circulation Solution for (client)

RFID Programming Workstation - Serves as a programming workstation for tags, once these tags are programmed with unique item number and other information. Once these tags are activates the security bit for the theft detection.

Self-Checkout Station - Allows patrons to self issue items without assistance from the library staff. Complete with a touch screen and receipt printer, the Patron Self- Checkout Station helps libraries to manage the human resources efficiently.

Security Gates – These gates are the focal point of the RFID security system. When any member try to steal a book/resource from the library which fitted with RFID activated tags, the security gate will raise the alarm, whereas if the member had legitimately issued the book/resources the gates will not raise any alarm. These gates are pride item of any library.

Staff Circulation Station – Very similar to Self Checkout Station but it is managed the circulation staff rather than the library member themselves. But it is not like the traditional circulation process or barcode, these process are mainly used in cases where number of users are less or resources are costly or rare so that circulation staff is directly involved in the issue process and inform the member about the resources, etc.

Self-return Book Drop – It provide libraries the best service possible to its; members. Library can place the Drop Box (Self Return Drop Box) anywhere in the campus for example canteen, entry gate, etc and members can drop the books/resources in them and take the return receipt for the same, without visiting the library. The return process online, library will get online updates into it’s resource database. Libraries can make arrangement for collecting the books at any given point of the time during the day.

Page 17 of 33

Auto Sorting Station – RFID enabled sorting machine will help in automatically sorting the books/resources according to predefined sorting setup. These help the shelving staff in sorting the books.

Handheld RFID Scanner for stock taking and shelf rectification: Handheld scanner is able to two function they are: -

o Stock Taking: Imagine a library with a collection of millions of books, and they
have to do stock taking of all the collection. Generally with collection more than 1-2 lakh, a library can take more than 3 months to do a complete stock taking. Whereas, a RFID handheld scanner can scan 50 books in a 05 seconds i.e. in one hour a library can take stock taking of 30,000 books approximately and that also 100% accurate.

o Shelf Rectification: imagine the condition of the user or the circulation staff in
locating a book/resources in the library which is hidden by students/user. Libraries have option of rectifying the shelves in the library during the stock taking process itself or under some periodic process with the help of the RFID Handheld Scanner. RFID has to programmed in such a way that it exactly knows the position of the book/resources in the shelf/library and it will beep/alarm if the location of the book is not matched with the record.

RFID Process

Perhaps the most difficult and disliked function in libraries is stock management and shelf management (rectification and re-shelving). Both the function becomes extremely simple with RFID technology. The components necessary for inventory management consist of a handheld reader and a Wand with an IPAQ (hand-held personal digital assistant) at the end. The Reader weighs only 607 grams (0.6 kgs) and the Wand 435 grams (0.4 kg), making the weight of the entire unit approximately one kilogram. A shelf can be inventoried in a matter of a few minutes as the units can read up to 50-60 tags a minutes. The system allows for two different methods for taking inventory. There are two process used in the using the RFID handheld scanner. The first method for taking inventory is to run the RFID Handheld Scanner across the shelf. This process captures the RFID data to the PDA, which can store data for more than 6 million
Page 19 of 33

Proposal for RFID Security & Circulation Solution for (client)

books. This data is uploaded, through wired or wireless connections, to the ILS system, where the software program performs the stock taking functions. The second method involves a pre-processing step where data is downloaded from the ILS system to the Reader. This method is more effective when there is a need to search for specific books or to identify miss-shelved or missing books. The unit comes with an audible alarm to provide appropriate feedback to the user. All in all, this technology converts the otherwise tedious task of managing stock management to aa convenient technique for helping libraries gain control over their collections.

EAS Gate
Library EAS security gate can be fixed with a video camera The single-lane gate should consist of 02 (two) pedestals: Each pedestal is standalone and plug and play to the main power. The Security Gates need to be linked to the library database, and should still operate even when the Integrated Library Management Software System is down or under maintenance.
