RFID in the library

This summer, a major project has taken place in the library. We have been planning it for almost a year and we can finally say: It`s done! I`m talking about RFID. The technology is quite old, but has been adopted to libraries the last few years. More and more libraries are now in the process of conversion.
In every document there is a chip that contains the information about the document. This makes it easier for us to maintain order on the shelves, but more importantly, it makes it easier to check in and out books. Once we get our new check-out stations, our patrons will be able to check in and out all our documents, and several at the time. We hope that this will result in a better service to our patrons. We`ll demonstrate how it`s done later, but if you want to check it out you can watch this video
