Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0165478A2] A library system arranged for borrowers themselves to check out objects provided with a non-contact identification label, in which, in addition to a number and other relevant information, there is also stored information for activating an antitheft system. The library pass is provided with the same type of label and with a reprintable layer, to specify the borrowed objects. The CD boxes are also provided with the same type of label, are magnetically lockable and have standard outside dimensions. Via a check-out and a check-in terminal, the objects to be borrowed can be coupled to and uncoupled from a library pass, the antitheft function can be deactivated and activated, and the CD boxes can be unlocked and locked. The check-in terminal can also be automated, whereby the borrowed objects are presented via a letterbox. Identification of the borrower is also possible on the basis of biometric features. With a portable transmitter/receiver, an inventory of the objects present in the library can be made.
