SkyRFID presents our new updated Multi-LingualAutomated RFID Self Serve Library System -
SkyRFID Library Express is a multi-lingual Automated
Library System designed to facilitate the circulation and organization of small
to large - sized collections of books, CD’s and DVD’s and other reading materials.
All materials are equipped with an RFID label
that provides monitoring and security for the materials available for
borrowing. The RFID tag is read each
time an item is loaned out or returned to the library instead of patrons
manually typing in or writing out book code numbers.

Patron or member workstations employ touch
screens for ease of legibility and simplicity of use. ISO RFID cards are used to automatically
identify authorized patrons and High Frequency 13.56 MHz RFID labels are
utilized for the reading and viewing materials which eliminate all data entry
errors. To ensure that all books are
checked out properly, the RFID label contains a special setting that must be
changed by the RFID reader in order to remove the material from the
When you already have workstations for patrons and library staff, then you only need to add our desktop ISO 15693 reader:

the materials to the member and then deactivates the EAS part of the RFID tag.
To assist in accuracy all materials can have full colored

At the end of the

If the materials are not correctly read and checked by the
Self Serve Patron Stations then the alarm will sound when the patron tries to
leave the library going through the RFID gate system.
Sky Library Express registers each borrowing transaction
including the return due date for each item based on item and member rules. If
the item is not returned before this due date, penalties can be applied to the member
and can lead to member disablement if not paid based on the item rules set up
by the library administrators.
To make returning materials easy for the members Sky Library
Express can also have one or more automated book/material drop boxes
conveniently located anywhere in the library.
Members simply slide their returned materials through the
access door and the automated RFID reader will read the materials RFID tag and
then update the library system and provide the member with a receipt from the
internal receipt printer. This automated
drop box improves library returns and borrowing as the staff can determine
exactly how many items are in the drop box and members can also see the
materials that are available in the drop box from the self serve patron
In addition the materials are stored in bin-locations
(shelves, cabinets, rooms, etc…) that are defined by the library staff so
finding materials is very easy.
Since libraries can have many rooms, cabinets, etc., the
library is also divided into Zones that represent a physical area in the
library (floor, hall, room, group of shelves)
Sky Library Express uses gloss polyester labels for long RFID label life and the label can have Library information such as name, logos, etc., printed on it during manufacturing. For CD and DVD cataloging SkyRFID provides a circular disk label with a gloss polyester finish.
For organizations that want to move to the current state of the art technology and use PC/SC and CCID compliant for both ISO 14443A and ISO 18092 devices for NFC smart payments, or be able to swap out any reader without changing any programs or setups we provide the latest NFC 13.56 Reader Writers.
SkyRFID supplies this library system in a variety of 13.56 ISO protocols designed to suit a variety of budgets and user needs. ISO 14443A, ISO 15693 and ISO 18000-3 standards are available for both the readers and labels used in the system.
