Library Card

  • A rewritable library card* can rewrite book details such as the book title and return date. Such information is rewritten at the library desk whenever books are borrowed or returned.

Advantages for cardholders

  • - Convenient due date reminders.
  • - Better than the paper slip, the library card is stored securely in a wallet or card case and retrieved easily.

Advantages for library

  • - The library's administrative workload is lightened. For example, since library users are less likely to lose their cards, the library staff receives fewer inquiries about book return dates; thus, the library staff spends less time responding to inquiries and more time assisting library patrons.
  • - The rewritable card helps to reduce the number of overdue books because library users are reminded of the return date.
    The rewritable card may be combined with a next generation library system that will use IC. Confirming identity and ensuring security may also be consolidated into one card. (Some organizations are using it on a trial basis.)

Other rental cards

  • Rewritable cards benefit not only libraries and their patrons but also video rental shops, CD rental shops, mobile rental shops, car rentals shops, and all of their customers.
