RFID in Libraries


CARL Poster Handouts

Filed under: — Laura @ 5:23 pm

I’m presenting a poster “Rifling through RFID” this weekend at the California Academic & Research Librarians conference. If you’re attending CARL, be sure to pop by and say hello.

Abstract: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has been in the news as a possible threat to patron privacy a key philosophical foundation of librarianship. This poster provides a brief introduction to RFID tags and their advantages and disadvantages for libraries. Cal Poly Pomona University Library is currently reviewing the technology and has come up with a list of questions to ask RFID vendors and an evaluation checklist for reviewing implementations at other libraries.

The handouts available on my work web site. All the credit goes to the Cal Poly Pomona RFID team – they created the questions and evaluation checksheet.
