Solution Description:

Public libraries promote literacy, education, and lifelong learning in communities. They provide a wide range of resources, including books, periodicals, audiovisual materials, and computer access, catering to the diverse needs of their visitors.

As of 2021, Hungary had 3.3 thousand public libraries nationwide. Where millions of books with their registration and proper place in the library are stored. All these places struggle with the same problem. The library staff or visitors sometimes do not return books to their dedicated places. This disorganization can lead to difficulties in locating and finding specific titles. It can impact the overall efficiency of the library’s operations and cause discomfort for people searching.

Librarians may struggle to locate specific books, resulting in discrepancies between the catalog and the physical collection. The staff may spend considerable time searching for misplaced books, diverting their attention from other critical tasks, and may face increased workloads due to reorganizing lost books regularly. When books are returned to their proper places, it becomes easier for library staff to retrieve requested items promptly.

Visitors may struggle to find books they are interested in due to misplacement. This frustration could deter them from returning to the library or result in negative feedback about its organization.

The inefficient organization caused by misplaced books can lead to a decrease in book circulation. If readers cannot easily find the materials they seek, they may borrow fewer items overall. Lost books can also lead to budgetary challenges. If books are returned on time or are recovered, the library may need to allocate funds to replace the missing items, impacting the overall budget.


Antra ID’s innovative technology revolutionizes library operations, ensuring books are always in their proper places and enhancing the overall library experience.

Antra ID’s Smart Library Solutions leverage advanced RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) technology and real-time tracking to efficiently manage books and ensure they are returned to their proper places in the library.

  • RFID-Tagged Books: Each book in the library is equipped with a small RFID tag containing unique identification data. These tags are non-intrusively attached to the books, allowing seamless integration with the Smart Library system.


  • Antennas and RFID Readers: The library has antennas and RFID readers strategically placed throughout the premises. These devices create a network that constantly scans and detects the presence of RFID-tagged books within their range.


  • Book Check-In and Check-Out: When a reader borrows a book, the RFID tag is scanned at the check-out counter using an RFID reader. This updates the system, marking the book as borrowed and associating it with the visitor’s account.


  • Real-Time Tracking: As visitors move throughout the library, the RFID readers continue to detect the presence of books. The system automatically updates the book’s location in real-time, keeping track of which books are on the shelves, which are in circulation, and which are misplaced.



  • Automated Alerts: The system triggers an automated alert if a book is not returned to its designated shelf within a specified timeframe. Library staff receives notifications, allowing them to proactively search for the misplaced book and return it to its proper place.


Antra ID’s Smart Library Solution seamlessly integrates with the library’s existing management system. This ensures that all data, including book inventory, readers records, and borrowing history, is up-to-date and easily accessible. With real-time tracking and automated alerts, library staff can efficiently manage book inventory, reduce the time spent searching for misplaced books, and ensure a well-organized and user-friendly library environment.

Antra ID’s Smart Library Solutions streamline book management, enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of library operations. By leveraging RFID technology and real-time tracking, libraries can significantly reduce book misplacement, improve readers’ experiences, and optimize resources for a seamless and successful library experience.
