About Workshop

World over, libraries are constantly facing challenges to meet the ever increasing expectations of users, due to lack of funds as well as resources too. Therefore, it is high time that libraries upgrade their services and systems using innovative approaches and use latest technology to fulfill the ever increasing expectation of users. This workshop is to provide training to library professionals to groom themselves to learn digital repositories of library material and library automation through RFID.

About DSpace: DSpace is open source repository software package typically used for creating open access repositories for scholarly and/or published digital content. While DSpace shares some features overlap with content management system and document management systems, DSpace repository software serves a specific need as a digital archive system, focused on the long term storage, access and preservation of digital content.  The first public version of DSpace was released in November 2002. DSpace is constructing with Java web applications and many programs and an associated metadata store.

About RFID: RFID is an acronym for “Radio-Frequency Identification” and refers to a technology whereby digital data encoded in RFID Tags or smart labels (are captured by a reader via radio waves. RFID is similar to barcoding in that data from a tag or label are captured by a device that stores the data in a database. RFID, however has several advantages over system that use barcode asset tracking software. RFID in the library speeds up book borrowing, monitoring, books searching processes and thus frees staff to do more user-service tasks.
