By Gretchen Freeman, Principal Librarian/Strategist / March 29, 2017 / Categories: #AMH #RFID #Tagging

For most libraries, the biggest hurdle to implementing RFID is the daunting task of tagging the entire collection. Some fortunate libraries can afford to outsource tagging; some libraries can close branches or an entire system to tag with existing staff.

Benefits of AMH, RFID and SCO
By Gretchen Freeman / June 25, 2015 / Categories: #Automated Materials Handling #RFID #Self Checkout

Implementing self-checkout in public libraries has definitely reached a tipping point — there’s no reason not to offer any of a number of options. Patrons appreciate the convenience (and privacy) of self-checkout and staff time is shifted from barcode scanning to check out lines of restless patrons. 

But libraries aren’t so sure whether the benefits of adding RFID or automated sorting systems outweigh the costs. I’m convinced that the benefits are substantial for all sizes of libraries—and not only in saving staff time for other priorities but in improvements to the patron experience.

Tagging Your Collection
By Gretchen Freeman / June 25, 2015 / Categories: #RFID

Applying RFID tags to your collection doesn’t need to be an insurmountable task if you pair the right method with the right circumstances. Start by answering a few simple questions.

  • Can you close the library for tagging—either for a short “blitz” or until tagging is completed?
  • If you can’t close the library, will you use existing staff, temporary staff or volunteers to tag? Or have tagging provided as a professional service by Tech Logic?
  • Are you moving the collection into a new space or building?
  • Is there space behind the scenes to handle A/V materials away from the shelves or bins?

With every method, be sure that returned materials are tagged before they are re-shelved into tagged sections of the library.
