|Zayed University Chooses Nedap's Librix Portfolio for State-of-the-Art Library
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, October 21, 2011 --(PR.com)-- RFID technology to offer students and faculty a seamless library experience.
At the end of this year, the highly anticipated new campus of Zayed University is expected to open in Khalifa City, Abu Dhabi. Covering an area of 213,000 square meters, the campus will offer it’s expected 6,000-member student body a wide assortment of state-of-the-art learning opportunities. And while laboratories, classrooms and computer labs will certainly showcase the latest high-tech innovations, it is the RFID-equipped library that will set a new standard for education in the region and beyond.
The Library at Zayed University, which comprises a total of 18,000 square meters, has been equipped with the latest version of Librix, an innovative RFID solution that makes the lending and returning process easier than ever before. Books are equipped with RFID tags, and after scanning his library card, a student simply needs to place the desired books on a special check-out station before leaving the library; an easy-to-use bilingual touch screen guides both English- and Arabic-speaking students through the process. Returning borrowed books follows a similarly streamlined procedure. In terms of staff benefits, all stations are connected to Librix Online, which enables direct hardware performance monitoring and statistics output.
This is one of the latest installations of Nedap’s innovative library solutions. More than 650 libraries around the world are already harnessing the power of this fully-integrated hardware and software system.
