Many modern technologies give the impression that they somehow work by magic, particularly when they operate automatically and their mechanisms are invisible. A technology called RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), which is relatively new, has exactly this characteristic. Librarians everywhere are closely watching RFID technology. Advances over using bar codes on library materials, RFID tags are being touted as a way to radically redesign how library materials are handled. But it is expensive. The tags are vulnerable to wear and tear and the technology is not fully developed. It's unclear what sort of return on investment (ROI) it provides. While it is common for libraries to now have information technology expertise within their organizations, RFID may appear unfamiliar. RFID for Libraries: A practical guide examines what RFID technology is and how it works. The book reviews the development of computer technology and its effects on library operations over the last couple of decades. Further examination features the applications of RFID technology in libraries. An assessment of current implementations in libraries and the lessons learnt provides suggestions to overcome the issues faced. Concluding chapters look into the future to see what developments might be possible with RFID in libraries. Benefiting from the rich experience the author has gained during recent implementation of RFID based system for his library and the important title aids the library and information community in understanding RFID technology from a library perspective. Written by a librarian who has recently implemented the RFID system for his library Comprehensive review of available RFID systems for libraries Step by step guidelines for successful implementation of RFID systems in the library

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has had a rapid impact on the library world. Its advantage over other technologies used in libraries is usually seen to be its ability to combine the functions of the barcode and the security tag, but with the added advantages of being able to read multiple items seemingly simultaneously without need of 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 book is designed to help library managers decide whether RFID has anything to offer them and - if so - how to make the most of the benefits while coping with the challenges inherent in this rapidly developing technology. It also offers many further sources of information to follow up. Applicable to all types of libraries, its contents include: RFID, libraries and the wider world RFID in libraries: the background and the basics RFID, library applications and the library management system standards and interoperability privacy RFID and health and safety RFID and library design building a business case for RFID in libraries, and requesting proposals staffing: savings, redeployment or something else? buying a system: evaluating the offers installing RFID: project management making the most of RFID: a case study RFID, libraries and the future. Readership: RFID has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of library service delivery. Written by an expert in the field, this book is a very worthwhile investment for all those library professionals considering converting to RFID for their libraries, as well as those who are implementing it already.

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) allows an item, for example a library book, to be tracked and communicated with by radio waves. This technology is similar in concept to a cellphone. RFID is a broad term for technologies that use radio waves to automatically identify people or objects. There are several methods of identification, but the most common is to store a serial number that identifies a person or object, and perhaps other information, on a microchip that is attached to an antenna (the chip and the antenna together are called an RFID transponder or an RFID tag). The antenna enables the chip to transmit the identification information to a reader. The reader converts the radio waves reflected back from the RFID tag into digital information that can then be passed on to computers that can make use of it. RFID can be used library circulation operations and theft detection systems. RFID-based systems move beyond security to become tracking systems that combine security with more efficient tracking of materials throughout the library, including easier and faster charge and discharge, inventorying, and materials handling. This technology helps librarians reduce valuable staff time spent scanning barcodes while charging and discharging items. RFID is a combination of radio -frequency-based technology and microchip technology. Libraries should be exploring mobile devices as a way to connect with patrons. Creating a library application or mobile Web site that allows patrons to access library hours, view their library account or even search databases is easier than most people think. The book entitled Exploring the Potential of RFID and Mobile Technology in Your Library emphasizes an overview of RFID technology in libraries; advice on how to select an RFID solution, from choosing between suppliers and evaluating the competition to; designing your own solution and making the right business case; strategies for ensuring a smooth installation; case studies of RFID and technology use and a look at the future of RFID, including mobile technology and other uses beyond books. This book will be important reading for anyone with responsibility for integrating library systems, those with responsibility for selection, evaluation or procurement of IT solutions and responsibility for service development, managing collections or managing access to buildings. It will also be of interest to commercial companies, who are seeking insights into library working in order to introduce new products, and LIS students.

Rapid time-to-market expectations and the demand for custom-tailored products present real challenges for the rigid and fixed linear supply chains that compete in today's economy. Connective technologies meet these challenges head on by integrating the necessary people, information, and products beyond their current limitations. Connective Technologies in the Supply Chain illustrates the impact that connective technologies have across supply chains. It provides strategic frameworks, conceptual and analytical models, and case studies that focus on the design, development, and implementation of these technologies as they pertain to the management of engineering and manufacturing operations. Placing particular emphasis on RFID, the book addresses issues that include those involving GPS, inventory management, quality control, mobile technology, and security challenges. The book presents an overview of RFID applications, its underlying concepts and principles, and a macro perspective on its implementation in the manufacturing and service sectors. It also provides a feasible design of the technology's enabled knowledge-based supply chain management system. Connective Technologies in the Supply Chain is an essential resource for those who would like to expand their knowledge of-and increase their success with-these applications.
