Chapter 3: RFID Standards

Lori Bowen Ayre


Chapter 3 of Library Technology Reports (vol. 48, no. 5) “RFID in Libraries: A Step toward Interoperability” discusses RFID standards. RFID has not been widely adopted in libraries partly because of the lack of standards. However, as of 2012, several key standards are in place, which provides an opportunity for moving toward interoperable RFID systems where libraries should be able to read each other’s RFID tags, and tags and equipment should all work together regardless of the vendor or the library system being used. This chapter provides a brief history of the standards development process and articulates what needs to be done to take advantage of the standards now in place.
