RFID automation process involve following things
RFID Tag is pasted into the item in such a way that it is not visible to the patron. Item tagging process involves writing accession numbers to tag memory. It is done using RFID Reader. This makes the item ready for all library operations and RFID transactions.
Kiosk allows patrons to do an Issue (Check Out) or Return (Check In) 24/7 without any staff intervention. Patrons place their smart card or RFID card on the kiosk reader and once identification is confirmed, Items are placed on the reader and issue or return transaction is done. A Transaction receipt is printed, and the transaction details are sent by email and/or SMS to the patron.
The Drop box is kept outside the library so patrons do not need to enter the library for Return (Check In). Patrons can drop their items in the drop box 24×7. This will return the book automatically, and a receipt with transaction details will be printed, and sent by email and/or, SMS to the patron.
The Stock verification process becomes simple using RFID and it can be done regularly as it takes very less time as compared to using barcodes or a manual process. Misplaced items are immediately identified using an Inventory device
