The RGUKT Basar library has plan to develop and incorporate RFID technology. RFID(Radio Frequency Identification) allows an item, for example a library book, to be tracked and communicated with by radio waves. There are several methods of identification, but the most common is to store a serial number that identifies a person or object, and perhaps other information, on a microchip that is attached to an antenna (the chip and the antenna together are called an RFID transponder or an RFID tag). The antenna enables the chip to transmit the Identification information to a reader. The reader converts the radio waves reflected back from the RFID tag into digital information that can then be passed on to computers that can make use of it.
It is effective because:
- It is time consuming Stock Verification Process
- Weak Security
- Long queues for book issue and return
- Tracking a misplaced book
- Getting information regarding a particular book
- Users can access to free E- book, E-journals.
- The library has a collection of 425 video cassettes and facility to view them. Most of the video cassettes in the Library are video recordings of series of class room lectures delivered by the faculty to the undergraduate engineering students.
The library subscribes to 507 current journals running into 430 Several journals that Are subscribed in print are also accessible online from the publisher’s web site. The online journals are: ASCE, ASME.
