Lib~Assist

Independence, portability, material handling and superior inventory control with RFID systems from Libramation

When was the last time an inventory was completed at your library?

Some library directors have stated that many years pass between inventories because closing the library to conduct inventory, results in numerous complaints from patrons.

How does your library locate items that are presumed missing to mis-shelved?

Inventory control is one of the largest challenges faced by most libraries and potentially, one of the most important applications of the Libramation RFID system.

Libramation's Lib~Assist Hand Held tablet updates information to the circulation database by either wireless communication using SIP2 protocol

 

The hand held unit is designed to read at least 100 tags a minute.

 

By setting program parameters via the touch screen or keypad on the unit. the Hand Held uses the Lib!Assist software to complete the following functions:

Circulation - The hand held can sign out books to patrons or used for returning materials. This can be especially helpful for small libraries or bookmobiles.

Inventory - Items are loaded into the hand held unit as they are scanned on the shelves. The information can communicate directly with your ILS for inventory, or it can be uploaded into the inventory module depending on the ILS.

Programming RFID Tags - Using the built in scanner, RFID tags can be programmed using the hand held as the programming unit.

Searching for specific items - Lists of items that are missing, on hold, or identified for other purposes can be loaded onto the hand held. As the shelves are scanned, the items are identified.

Shelf reading - As library staff pass the reader along the shelves, items that are in the incorrect location are identified. The machine beeps to let the user know of the issue.

 

The Lib~Assist has dual platform reading both Barcode and RFID labels. This feature allows for easy programming of RFID tags without having to move cumbersome equipment. In addition, it also features USB, Bluetooth and WiFi connections.

The handheld unit is fully compatible with the Library's existing ILS, allowing it to upload or download from that database using either the SIP protocol, or using a text file format (ie. Inventory Purposes).
