Rf-I- Do

  1. 1. RF I DO! Mary A. Kelly and Derek Engi Salem-South Lyon District Library Imagine the Possibilities!
  2. 2. RFID-What is it? <ul><li>RFID is used to describe systems that use radio waves to identify objects </li></ul><ul><li>Think of it as a barcode on steroids </li></ul>
  3. 3. Barcodes <ul><li>Fixed information </li></ul><ul><li>Data security </li></ul><ul><li>Limited data </li></ul><ul><li>Line of sight only </li></ul><ul><li>One at a time </li></ul>
  4. 4. RFID <ul><li>No Line of sight necessary </li></ul><ul><li>Tags can be read in the vicinity of a reader </li></ul><ul><li>Modification of data possible </li></ul><ul><li>Can read multiple tags at once </li></ul>
  5. 5. RFID What is involved? <ul><li>RFID is basically two pieces: </li></ul><ul><li>Tags </li></ul><ul><li>Reader </li></ul><ul><li>(interrogator) </li></ul>
  6. 6. Salem-South Lyon’s RFID Project <ul><li>65,000 items beginning October 2004 </li></ul><ul><li>11 months to retrofit collection (done in-house) </li></ul><ul><li>All staff contributed to retrofit project </li></ul><ul><li>10-15 high school volunteers </li></ul>
  7. 7. Why spend an obscene amount of money, a year retrofitting a collection, dealing with yet another technology issue for staff to complain about and generally make one’s professional life a nightmare?
  8. 8. Security <ul><li>The most visible part and biggest selling point of RFID </li></ul><ul><li>Think of combining the power of tattletape with your ILS </li></ul><ul><li>Less intrusive to the public </li></ul><ul><li>Proven technology </li></ul>
  9. 9. Self Check-out <ul><li>Patron convenience </li></ul><ul><li>Less time and staffing needed for circulation </li></ul>
  10. 10. Other time savings with RFID <ul><li>Faster discharge </li></ul><ul><li>Faster checkout </li></ul><ul><li>Automation of routine circulation tasks </li></ul><ul><li>Inventory management </li></ul>
  11. 11. Inventory Wand <ul><li>Collects information quickly without “heavy lifting” </li></ul><ul><li>Brings your ILS to the material rather than material to ILS </li></ul>
  12. 12. The Inventory Wand <ul><li>Allows for any criteria from your ILS or master shelf list to load into the system </li></ul><ul><li>Wave the wand close to the collection </li></ul><ul><li>With practice, staff can pass the wand over one full stack in less than a minute (30 items on a shelf, 6 shelves). </li></ul>
  13. 13. Making RFID go to 11!
  14. 14. FDS <ul><li>Functional Data and Statistics </li></ul><ul><li>RFID / PHP / MySQL / Python </li></ul><ul><li>Passively gathers checkpoint data from circuit readers and self-check </li></ul><ul><li>Pre-Director Station </li></ul><ul><li>No ILS? No Problem! </li></ul><ul><li>Shelflist </li></ul>
  15. 15. FDS <ul><li>Functional Data and Statistics </li></ul>
  16. 16. FDS
  17. 17. Inventory Control <ul><li>All things accounted for in real time </li></ul><ul><li>RFID collects and processes information faster </li></ul><ul><li>Each item is identified so theoretically, no missing items </li></ul><ul><li>Shelf order maintenance </li></ul>
  18. 18. Collection Quality and RFID <ul><li>Identify your hot sellers </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Get more copies </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Buy more of the same genre or author </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Identify the losers </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Is the topic a dud or is it the material or format? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Re-evaluate investment of collection money </li></ul></ul></ul>
  19. 19. Collection Quality and RFID <ul><li>Staff time on collection management is reduced </li></ul><ul><li>Weeding can be done in minutes </li></ul><ul><li>Number of missing books reduced </li></ul><ul><li>Reduction in number of miss-filings </li></ul>
  20. 20. Salem-South Lyon District Library <ul><li>Before RFID, we had over 2,000 missing items </li></ul><ul><li>On the first serious day with the inventory wand we found over 100 items missing </li></ul><ul><li>Current missing list is less than 700 </li></ul>
  21. 21. Salem-South Lyon District Library <ul><li>Identified mislabeled items </li></ul><ul><li>Identified misshelved items </li></ul><ul><li>Weeding and other collection maintenance tasks are on-going rather than sporadic </li></ul>
  22. 22. WHAMS <ul><li>RFID / PHP / MySQL based PC registration </li></ul><ul><li>Really simple, keeps track of stats </li></ul>
  23. 23. Whams
  24. 24. Things I wish I had known before implementing RFID <ul><li>Weed ruthlessly </li></ul><ul><li>If you are putting a tag on something, take the extra time and do a complete physical inventory of the collection </li></ul><ul><li>Staff buy-in and communication is more important than you think </li></ul>
