Chapter 4: Moving Your RFID System to the New US Data Profile

Lori Bowen Ayre


Chapter 4 of Library Technology Reports (vol. 48, no. 5) “RFID in Libraries: A Step toward Interoperability” discusses moving RFID to the new US Data Profile. It will take a concerted effort to move from a library's existing RFID system to one that is compliant with the new standards. However, in order to achieve interoperability and to extend the uses of RFID in libraries, libraries need to do just that. This chapter provides recommendations for libraries that already have RFID installed and those that are looking to get started. It also discusses how RFID technology can be leveraged beyond basic circulation and security functions to do much more.
