RFID in Libraries


Caveats on docs

Filed under: — Laura @ 11:26 am

I would like to add some more information about handouts I mentioned yesterday. The questions our library developed do not contain many references to privacy issues. This is because our understanding of the controversy is evolving. Those documents are a snapshot in time. When we wrote them, we were of the understanding that violations of privacy within the library setting were unlikely. This was due to the limited range of RFID tag readers, the lack of links between tags and patron records, and the rarity of encountering tag readers outside of the library setting. We feel a bit differently now.

Anybody who uses these documents should add questions regarding privacy issues.
