RFID Institute: October 25-26 - Walk-ins Welcome!
NISO and the University of North Texas Center are bringing you a 2-day Institute on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification). We have tapped an array of experts to examine the use of RFID in business and the library and book world; this event will inform you about the benefits and opportunities this technology offers and the standards needed to maximize performance.In general I don't see why libraries should invest in this. Large systems maybe, they could do sorting of returns and make it pay off. Maybe drop boxes cold be locked and only open when receiving a signal from a tag. That would stop snow, kittens, and other stuff being dropped down the chute. Maybe if I went to the institute I'd drink the kool-aid and see the light.
