Northeast Ohio Regional Library System - Event Information

Event Name:To Tag, or Not to Tag? Implementing RFID at Your Library
Competency:Collection Management
Description:RFID promises to revolutionize circulation at your library, from checkout and returns to inventory and security. But once the equipment is installed, what does it really take to place an individually encoded RFID tag on every one of the thousands of items in your collection?

We’d like to walk you through the process.

Learning Objectives:
  • Consider RFID tag types, shapes, and sizes for optimized device reading, along with where to place them on books and media
  • Understand the tagging process at the item level and at the project level
  • Know why and how to disable older, non-ISO tags when implementing an updated RFID system
  • Explore project management considerations to ensure that a collection is tagged completely, correctly, and quickly

John Reese is vice president of on-site services at Backstage Library Works. He earned his MLS from Brigham Young University and has been immersed in libraries and library technology for more than 30 years. John has presided over on-site collections management projects for RFID tagging, inventory, weeding, and reclassification. His teams have counted, relabeled, cleaned, shifted, moved, and interfiled tens of millions of books.
