RFID Intelligent Shelf

Filed under: — Laura @ 8:21 am

An interesting library RFID application is being discussed on RFID_LIB.

Nedap Library Solutions, a European firm, will soon be releasing an “intelligent RFID book shelf.”

I can see how in gathering in-house usage statistics would be more automated with reader-equipped shelves. No need to remind pages or student reshelvers to use the wand when making their rounds. And, it would be possible to tell if a book had simply been moved rather than taken off the shelf. This could make in-house usage stats more accurate. I wonder if the product will fly or if librarians will find inventory wands to be good enough for their needs.

Nedap is going to be attending the Frankfurt Book Fair – if anybody wants a demo.
