RFID: Considerations for Implementation

While much has been published on how RFID technology works and its uses for libraries, there has been limited public discussion of factors that should be considered in deciding whether to move forward with implementation or the specifics of planning and decision-making involved should a library decide to implement. This webinar will inform and equip librarians to handle this still relatively new territory. Presenter will give a brief overview of the history, the technology, and library uses of RFID and factors to consider including financial, time, technical, consortium/community, and educational considerations.

Learning Outcomes

Attendees will be more informed and better equipped to handle decision-making related to RFID.

Who Should Attend?

Librarians whose libraries are currently considering whether to implement RFID, those in the process of implementing it, and those interested in learning what the technology can do.
