Using MyKad as Membership CardFebruary 24, 2010
In line with the Government of Malaysia’s call for multi-functional usage of MyKad, the Melaka State Library is using MyKad as a membership card. If you wish to borrow books from the library, you will have to present your MyKad which will be read into the system for verification.
This is a good way to implement technology that is currently available to the public. Every citizen of Malaysia has to carry an Indentification Card (MyKad). The MyKad being a chip based Smart Card is the perfect card for multi-function application in the Information Technology world.
The MyKad has the holders full name, the address, colour photo and date of birth. These are the basic information on needs to provide to register for services. Using the card save time when needing to register.
The card is inserted into the reading device and a computer system reads the information in less that 15 sec.
The MyKad is perfect for Clinic Registration, Libraries, Clubs, Hotel Check in and many more applications. See here for more on MyKad Readers.
