The advantage of radio frequency identification (RFID) over other technologies used in libraries is usually seen to be its ability to combine the functions of the barcode (as a unique item identifier) and the security tag (able to indicate that an item is being removed from the library without permission), but with the added advantage of not needing line of sight. The customer- friendly self service that this combination of features makes possible is at the heart of the attraction of RFID for most libraries. This practical and straightforward new book will consider the benefits of installing RFID technology, work with vendors and how to implement it on the ground. It will also consider technical issues such as interoperability, metadata and standards. Applicable to all types of libraries, its contents include: current and potential application of RFID in libraries; how RFID works in library applications; standards/interoperability; privacy issues; how successful have implementations been; is RFID for you; building a business case for RFID in libaries; staffing implications; return on investment; practicalities: choosing a system, staff development, process re- engineering; ensuring return on investment; and, RFID and libraries - the future. Written by an expert in the field, it will be worthwhile for those considering converting to RFID as well as those who are implementing it already.
