The Future of RFID Technology in the Library

1425-1455 – Ian Gifford, University of Manchester

University of Manchester have been developing an app for android devices which allows library users to self-issue books via a standard smartphone/tablet. It relies on the Near Field Communications (NFC) technology to process decoding the barcode, authenticate the user, remotely issuing the book and disabling the tag security so a user can ‘check-out’ the book.
