The main aim of this project is to implement library management system by maintaining the database for issuing or returning the books.
The purpose of this project is to identify the authorized student using smartcard and to check the status of the each and every book whether it is issued or not using RFID technology.
Whenever student needs any book from the Library to be issued, he needs to insert his smart card into the Smart Card Reader placed in the Library. The Controller checks whether the student got membership or not (Smart Card Validation) by communicating with Smart Card Reader. If the Card is proved to be valid then the student is allowed else buzzer will buzz.
The communication between the microcontroller and Smart Card Reader is through Serial Communication. The MAX-232 forms the driver between the Card reader and controller then the student details are displayed on LCD which is interfaced to the microcontroller.
An RFID tag is attached into the book with the relevant information like book name, book number etc. The detailed information regarding the book is also captured in the microcontroller.
The book is issued to the student and a bookmark is stored in the EEPROM interfaced to microcontroller ,when the student returning from the library, bookmark check by the RFID reader and the controller checks whether the book details is valid or not if not valid then buzzer will buzz.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is the latest technology that is being adopted to track and trace materials, including books. RFID based Library Management System has been implemented in most of the reputed libraries across the globe. RFID interfaced library management system, along with smart card issued to the users are being implemented to automate the library functions and make the inventory management process efficient and effective. The system improves the tracking of books and documents so that the books can be more quickly located, the document workflow more easily tracked and transaction records are seamlessly captured.
A smart card is an integrated circuit card that forms a part of a circuit or system when engaged with a smart card interface. Smart cards are becoming increasingly more popular for security and personal identification applications. Smart cards have one or more microcontrollers embedded in them which manage to access and storage of sensitive data that is actually stored in memory devices on the smart card.
The smart chip included on a smart card provides a means for secured electronic transactions and a means for identification. The integrated chip is embedded in the smart card and operates to process specific transactions. The smart card uses a serial interface and receives its power from an external source such as a smart card reader.
