PLA 2012: Librarian's Field Guide to Near Field Communication

Presentation for the 2012 Public Library Association conference in Philadelphia, PA.

A Librarian’s Field Guide to Near Field Communication

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a rising technology that allows mobile devices to exchange 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. This presentation will discuss how NFC works; how it’s currently being used by merchants, advertisers, and gamers; and the impact it could have on libraries, librarians, and library patrons.
Presented by: Sheli McHugh, cataloging and metadata librarian, University of Scranton, Pa.; Kristen Yarmey, digital services librarian, University of Scranton, Pa.
