Near Field Communication (NFC) is a new technology that allows devices such as cell phones to transmit information wirelessly across a small distance. While it has many commercial applications (e.g., using your cell phone as a credit card at the grocery store), NFC could also have future applications for libraries as a new way to link physical materials with digital information. Placing particular attention on cataloging, metadata, and circulation, this presentation will discuss potential strategies for utilizing NFC in libraries, from peer to peer loaning to embedding catalog records in books.
