With the continuous advancement of technology and the continuous change of public opinion, self-service equipment has been widely used in various fields of daily life, such as cafeterias, self-service supermarkets, etc., and the construction of libraries also needs to keep pace with the times and move towards intelligence and self-service direction. In the process of promoting national reading and promoting the construction of spiritual civilization, the traditional library lending management style has become increasingly unable to meet the needs of modern reading. This not only refers to the reader's process, but also involves the management and service level of the library staff.
The smart library is an extension of traditional library services in terms of time and space. It can provide readers with full self-service reading, borrowing and returning of books. It is based on RFID technology and IoT technology, with smart devices as the medium, and with the goal of achieving intelligent management, unifying the library, network, database, equipment, and readers into an intelligent system.
Smart libraries can provide value chain solutions from raw material production management to end-user applications. Combining technology and humanities to provide appropriate library operation planning. RFID technology is applied to the system integration and introduction experience of different libraries to improve customization capabilities and ensure the seamless integration of new and old systems, and an innovative & flexible team operation model with a proactive corporate culture. Eventually, library staff can manage and maintain more quickly and accurately, and readers can enjoy better services.
With the development of the latest informatization and networking, as well as the rise of the concept of the Internet of Things, the intelligent library self-service terminal system has realized the requirements of digital unmanned management, simplified readers’ borrowing and returning procedures, shortened book circulation cycles, and increased book borrowing rates, to make the book borrowing convenient and quick, and get orderly management. The intelligent library forms an overall dynamic management of the reader's borrowing process, while reducing the labor cost of the library.
The library self-service terminal system adopts integrated information technology to complete the operation of borrowing and returning books, assisting the latest computing hardware modules, and flexibly industrial touch Panel computer system, supporting multimedia information display such as ultra-high-definition images/voices and human-machine interaction. The user information is collected by RFID and ID card identification and other card identification technology, the router transmits the data to the back-end server and database, and the server automatically completes the confirmation.
