About the Webinar

A new three-part international ISO standard on RFID in Libraries (ISO 28560) has been approved for publication and NISO has a revision underway for the recommended practice, RFID in U.S. Libraries (NISO-RP-6-2008), which will provide U.S. implementers with guidance on how to provide RFID in a way that adheres to the ISO work.

NISO's two-part April webinar on RFID Systems in Libraries will provide background on the use of RFID in libraries and bring attendees up-to-date on the recent standards and what they mean to both system vendors and libraries.

This first part of the RFID webinar will provide a broad look at RFID, a better understanding of what benefits using RFID tags brings to libraries, and give attendees some information about the roles of various players in the supply chain for the provision of RFID tags and associated services.


Todd Carpenter, NISO Managing Director

Todd will introduce this webinar series by explaining how it relates to the ISO standard and work at NISO, NISO's RFID recommended practice, and to the libraries at large. Though the ISO and NISO work serve as a basis for RFID systems, those will be looked at in more detail in the second part of this series, while this first webinar will be providing attendees with a broad look at RFID in libraries, and the various players in the RFID supply chain.

User Perspective
Alan Gray, Assistant Director, Operations, Darien Library

Learn from this library representative reasons about why a library might implement RFID and how, including a look at both the benefits and risks. Hear about some things to consider when purchasing an RFID system/service for your library, including how the ISO and NISO recommendations might play a role in the decision making process.

Supply Chain Perspective
Rob Walsh, President & Co-founder, EnvisionWare, Inc.

Hear in this portion of the webinar from a supply chain representative so that you can better understand what services a supplier might provide, from putting RFID tags on library items to coding RFID tags and post-sale services.
