Radio Frequency Identification: An Introduction for Library Professionals

Australasian Public Libraries and Information Services
Volume 19 Issue 4 (Dec 2006)

Abstract: While it is common for libraries to now have information technology expertise within their organizations, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) with its blend of radio technology and electronics may appear unfamiliar and against standards and frequencies. This paper provides information and observation which put some of the variables into context. Through discussions with libraries over recent years, many areas of concern or confusion regarding RFID have been identified. A framework to begin further exploration of the world of library RFID is suggested.
