An integrated solution for complete Library Management
Expedien’s Library Automation System automates the processes of book issuance and receipt, cataloguing, circulation, stock taking, acquisition, serial control and budgeting.
This state-of-the art system is built on RFID technology that uses radio frequencies to store and retrieve information about books. We have invested significantly in developing and certifying International Standard of RFID systems, built in partnerships with several library automation equipment providers.
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) devices have gained popularity in recent years as they provide a more efficient means of storing and identifying data about library items. The information is stored in RFID labels or tags which are pasted on the object. Radio frequencies emitted by the tags can be read by a tag reader or scanners placed within a few feet. The advantage of this technology is that unlike a microchip or bar code, the object does not have to be physically held in front of the scanner.
Expedien Library automation system follows International Standard of information interchanges with the help of Bibliographic Record - MARC 21 and Uni MARC, Z39.5 communication protocol and Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR2).
