Reaping Rewards of RFID
Singapore is probably first nation in the world to have all its public libraries
use RFID technology for the circulation and management of library items.
This enables them to do a stock-take of 100,000 items in just four hours.
Patrons can issue and return books at any public library
The university of Nevada libraries found more than 500 lost items after
officials tagged 600,000 items in its collection
Surveys at Baulkham Hills Council in Sydney showed that only 5 to 6
percent of their library staff’s time is spent on circulation duty compared to
85 percent before adopting RFID Self Server kiosks
San Francisco Public Library spent $265,000 in direct costs for repetitive
strain injuries over a three year period before implementing RFID based
library management system
