Book loans and returns become faster and multiple books are processed at once. The total renovation project of the library and its interior design was completed.
Kyungil University (President Chung, Hyun-Tae) has completed the project to establish a wireless sensing (RFID) book management system in the library for the first time in the region of Daegu and North Gyeongsang Province, and has begun pilot operation in preparation for face-to-face classes that will take place after the Covid-19 has died down.
The RFID library system is a technology that can identify objects using radio frequency, store the book information by attaching RFID tags to the collection, and then recognize the information through a reader. This system enables RFID-based unmanned self-service machines to be placed in each data room, allowing users to check out and return multiple books at the same time on a non-face-to-face basis, enhancing data accessibility, and enabling quick and convenient use of data. In addition, a 24-hour RFID unmanned book return machine can be installed outside the library to allow users to return books at any time.
In addition, the RFID library system has been evaluated as an essential unmanned automated equipment for open libraries by improving the efficiency of library work, such as preventing the loss of books and reducing the time for organizing books. With the introduction of RFID book management system, Kyungil University is transforming itself into a user-friendly environment by completely remodeling library archives to organize book storage space which reached its saturation point, improving its interior image, and introducing Internet seat allocation system.
"The library at Kyungil University is waiting for students to use it by adding its function as a communication and resting place to the smart learning space, thereby presenting itself as the optimal environment," said Kim Shin-Young, director of the Academic Information Center.
