166 pages




Haley, a system librarian at Chicago State University Library, provides background on the technology and benefits of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology in this guide for academic and public librarians wishing to convert to RFID technology. After a brief overview of how RFID technology works and its use in the retail environment, the guide discusses technical implementation issues for libraries as well as political and social concerns, costs, and physical logistics. Types of tags and readers are described, and there is advice on selecting a vendor. A final chapter outlines steps for managing the RFID conversion project. Appendices offer FAQs, sample budgets and conversion guidelines, and lists of web sites for RFID manufacturers, organizations, and news.
