NISO to hold April 14 Webinar on "RFID in Libraries: Standards and Expanding Use"
Existing ANSI and ISO standards outline the radio frequencies and character encoding on an RFID tag but donít address the specific needs for interoperability in a library environment. A NISO working group issued a Recommended Practice in 2008 on "RFID in U.S. Libraries" as an interim best practice until the ISO standardization effort was completed. That ISO standard is nearing its final stages and is expected to be finalized in late 2010 or early 2011. NISOís working group will be undertaking a revision of the recommended practice to align it with the international standard.
NISOís webinar, "RFID in Libraries: Standards and Expanding Use," on April 14, 2010 from 1:00 Ė 2:30 p.m. (Eastern), will look at the latest developments in both of these standardization efforts regarding the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) in libraries and share the experience of an actual implementation of RFID. Learn about RFID data models for library applications, what data is specified to be on an RFID tag, and which encoding schemes to use. Hear about experiences in implementing the NISO Recommended Practice and the issues that must be addressed beyond technology when RFID is introduced.
Topics and speakers for the webinar:
-- ISO Standard on RFID in Libraries -- Paul Sevcik, Senior Product Development Specialist, 3M Library Systems
-- U.S. Implementation of RFID in Libraries -- Vinod Chachra, CEO, VTLS, Inc.
-- Case Study of RFID Library Implementation -- Speaker TBA
