RFID’ing in the Library: UPDATE

" "

33,563 books have been RFID tagged as of Monday, April 3rd. Our project is a little over 75% completed! 

The Library is implementing a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) theft detection system for materials. In September, library staff and librarians began the conversion process, which involves pulling books off the shelves and affixing RFID tags to each book. Each RFID tag is encoded with a book’s barcode number, format type, and the library’s unique OCLC code. Tagged books are then returned to the shelf. With over 45,000 individual books in our collection, we estimate that the conversion process will be completed in the late spring or summer of 2023. For more information about this project, please read our RFID Conversion Project blog post.

The Library & Tutoring Services will be at the Student Involvement Fair – Wednesday, April 5th, 10am – 1pm. Drop by to learn about our services!
