  • Variable length model offers greater flexibility. 12 fields (out of 25) available for use
  • Item level identification not seen as useful for book trade. ISBNs on BT tags could violate privacy laws
  • Beware of SIP3!
  • Thank you! I am available for weddings, bar mitzvahs and consultancy.

    • 1. Changing times for RFID? Mick Fortune Library RFID Ltd
    • 2. Today I shall be mostly talking about… <ul><li>What exactly is RFID? </li></ul><ul><li>Libraries uses – the story so far </li></ul><ul><li>What’s changing. </li></ul><ul><li>How will change affect the library market? </li></ul>
    • 3. So what is RFID? <ul><li>R adio F requency Id entification </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Used for: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Tolls, supply chain logistics, brand protection, drug integrity, smart cards, elephant tracking and of course… </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can be active or passive, use different frequencies, capacities and structures </li></ul></ul>
    • 4. … Library Management! Smart shelves Sorters Dispensers Accessioning Shelf Checking Self Service Security
    • 5.  
    • 6. Different Markets/Different Solutions <ul><li>Australia/Asia </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Work stock harder = stock management </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Stock management = UHF solutions </li></ul></ul><ul><li>UK/US/Europe </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce staff costs = self service </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Self service = HF solutions </li></ul></ul>
    • 7. The UK Experience <ul><li>Tracking items in the supply chain looks rather similar to circulating items in a library. An obvious candidate for RFID! </li></ul><ul><li>but… </li></ul><ul><li>Key data, used to drive all LMS operations, now migrated to tags from barcodes… </li></ul><ul><li>… and everyone did that differently … </li></ul>
    • 8. Parlez-vous RFID? <ul><li>Retrieving tag data requires knowledge of: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Data Structure </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Physical Location </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Field size </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Validation rules </li></ul></ul>so finding the right data can present problems.
    • 9. So why is it so popular? <ul><li>Self Service was simple. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tried and tested. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Only the barcode number was needed to make it work. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Every LMS/RFID system spoke the same language (SIP). </li></ul></ul>But libraries want more!
    • 10. Moving on <ul><li>Taking inventory, tracing items, accessioning stock, EBSM, the wish list goes on growing… </li></ul><ul><li>Some solutions added data to tags, others worked with the LMS to create new “standards” </li></ul><ul><li>Some even re-invented the LMS… </li></ul>
    • 11. So, no lack of innovation then? <ul><li>No but, </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lack of agreement on common standards </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Limited engagement from LMS providers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>and US concerns over privacy </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Have all delayed progress. </li></ul>Introducing RFID - where we went wromng?
    • 12. Finding Solutions <ul><li>Self Service is a success story but, </li></ul><ul><ul><li>UK progress has been problematic, proprietary or fragmented. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>US still hampered by privacy concerns. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Australia and Asia still looking to UHF . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>We need to change something! </li></ul></ul>
    • 13. So What’s Changing?
    • 14. A New Data Standard <ul><li>ISO 28560 is the new common data standard for libraries. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Part 1 Defines the data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Part 2 Rules for variable length data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Part 3 Rules for fixed length data (European Preference) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>To be published in Q4 2009 </li></ul>
    • 15. UK Libraries and ISO 28560 <ul><li>BIC/CILIP committee agreed to adopt ISO 28560-2 in January 2009. </li></ul><ul><li>… and agreed a national profile for its use in April. </li></ul>
    • 16. Book Trade Initiatives <ul><li>Wiley beginning RFID trials using UHF. </li></ul><ul><li>Major retailers likely to dictate standards. </li></ul>Libraries will have to consider implications. Amazon Warehouse
    • 17. New Message Protocols <ul><li>SIP long overdue for review </li></ul><ul><li>LMS/RFID dialogue in progress on extending functionality </li></ul><ul><li>BIC sponsoring protocol development </li></ul><ul><ul><li>New report in November 2009 re-examines SIP and NCIP and will consider other means of extending functionality </li></ul></ul>
    • 18. How will the changes affect the library market?
    • 19. Library Suppliers <ul><li>Servicing companies will have fewer outputs, (but more inputs?). </li></ul><ul><li>RFID companies will sell hardware as well as solutions. </li></ul><ul><li>Single model may attract new players. </li></ul><ul><li>Tag prices could fall. </li></ul>
    • 20. Libraries <ul><ul><li>Easier resource sharing. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>More creativity in designing learning spaces. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>New functionality driving new services, better stock management and exploitation from closer LMS/RFID integration. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>But privacy concerns will have to be addressed. </li></ul></ul>
    • 21. Conclusions <ul><li>The Good News </li></ul><ul><ul><li>RFID looks set to develop more rapidly than ever. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>New initiatives underway should create greater choice, better interoperability. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The (not very) Bad News </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Be aware of the issues </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ask the right questions. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Get involved! </li></ul></ul>
