  • New solutions mayonly be compliant with new standards.Smartcards and smartphones will become part of new library “systems”
  • As this happens the relationship with LMS will change/evolve (Marshall predicts new software “layers” to deal with this – but may also be dis–aggregation.)
  • Challenges and opportunities - CILIP Conference London 2011

    1. 1. Challenges and Opportunities Looking forward to 2012Library RFID Mick Fortune Library RFID Ltd.
    2. 2. Today’s Topics • Major events of 2011 • What’s “trending”? • Today’s conference in context • What lies ahead?Library RFID
    3. 3. Major Events of 2011 • Standards – major developments • Suppliers – consolidation and change • New RFID products and servicesLibrary RFID – moving on from circulation • Publication of procurement guidelines • Formation of IFLA SIG on RFID
    4. 4. Standards • ISO 28560* published – UK, Australia and US(partly?) to use part 2 – Scandinavian and Switzerland to use part 3 – Bibliotheca (US) to use both? • UK data model publishedLibrary RFID • BLCF published (UK) • SIP 3.0 due out end 2011 *International data standard for library RFID
    5. 5. Suppliers - consolidation and change • Bibliotheca merged with ITG (USA) and Intellident (UK) • New self-service suppliers began entering the UK market (from Italy, USA and now… Turkey?)Library RFID • New suppliers using RFID/NFC beginning to appear (smartphones/smartcards)
    6. 6. New RFID products and services • Moving on from (self-service) circulation – Smartphones can read RFID tags – Smartphones/smartcards are being used to replace membership cards – Social networking is being linked to stock viaLibrary RFID tags – Stock can now interact directly with other RFID devices for resource discovery/exploration
    7. 7. Trends? (1) • RFID Solutions – Still link to LMS, but changing...? – Death of LMS being predicted by many commentators • New ideas and library applicationsLibrary RFID beginning to appear that may - or may not – integrate with existing systems and services • The librarian’s task is getting harder!
    8. 8. Trends? (2) • Frequencies – HF still dominant • Tags increasingly being seen as “system components” - not just identifiers • New applications being built on this philosophy (e.g. Massachusetts, South Australia)Library RFID – UHF still evolving • Tags still used as identifiers (often using manufacturer’s ID – not barcode number) • Often stand-alone (Moves to support ISO 28560 on UHF could change this over time)
    9. 9. Today’s conference in context • Key themes – Impact of new standards and protocols on established/future service provision – To migrate or not to migrate? – IntegrationLibrary RFID • with non-library services • with other library applications • with related technologies (e.g. NFC) • of existing implementations with new solutions
    10. 10. What lies ahead? (A brief exercise in Fortune telling) • RFID will continue to transition from dumb label to system component creating more function- rich applications • Use of standards will become vital to avoid multiple tagging (or re-tagging) • US market will resume leadership of globalLibrary RFID library RFID development as standards are adopted • RFID suppliers may evolve into the new LMS providers
    11. 11. Takeaways • Any RFID strategy needs to consider the technology’s impact on other systems/services • As RFID-based applications become more complex, systems integration will become more critical • Your chosen supplier may not be an expert onLibrary RFID everything. (They may even be relying on you to know some of the answers!)
