    • RFID Technology
      RFID works with a transponder or tag and a reader. These two units work together to identify the object. The transponder is attached to the object and the reader is stationary.
    • The 4 devices to RFID Technology
      RFID tags
      Readers or Coupler
      Antenna
      Server
    • RFID Tags
      Are flexible, paper-thin smart labels, approximately 2x2 inches in size; each tag contains an etched antenna and a tiny chip that is both readable and writable
      Are electronically programmed with unique information
      Can store vital bibliographical data including a unique accession number to identify each item of your collection
      There are three types of tags: “read only”, “WORM”, and “read/write”
    • Reader/Coupler
      Is composed of radio frequency modules, a control unit, and an antenna to read electronic tags via radio frequency communication
      Used to communicate between the tags and the server
      Sends information in two directions
    • Antenna
      Used to produce radio frequency waves that initiate tags as they pass through an activation field
      Is able to read multiple tags at one time
    • Server
      An important part of the RFID technology
      Links the coupler and the library’s automation system
    • Advantages to RFID Technology in Libraries
      Speedy Circulation Operations
      Self-Charging/Discharging
      Highly Reliable
      High-Speed Inventory Control
      Automated Handling of Material
      Long Life-RFID
