It is virtually impossible to do away completely with papers, files, folders and cabinets. A lot of essential services (e.g. legal and healthcare services) demand that written or printed copies of certain documents be carefully and orderly kept. But these files are regularly retrieved and updated. It becomes highly inefficient and time consuming to retrieve these files from where they are kept when their numbers become very large. This paper proposes the use of a low-cost Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) mechanism to manage documents filed and stored in shelves and cabinets. The proposed system makes use of a passive RFID tag and an interrogator. Radio signals in the low-frequency range (125 KHz) delivered inventory rounds (commands) that aid the speedy and timely retrieval of any file from a very large pool of others. The designed and implemented system worked perfectly well with a satisfactory modulation depth of 100% and a read range of two (2) meters.
