RFID provides library staff with powerful operational benefits. With the ability to store data, such as the item ID and security status on the tag, libraries can improve their productivity with the use of itemized reports and materials tracking. Faster self-service transaction times with multiple-item processing allow students to quickly get on with their busy schedules.

  • ability to read and process a stack of items at one time
  • combine security details with item information on one tag
  • provide in-depth reports and analysis for staff via libraryConnect™ devices
  • innovative solutions enhance user satisfaction

RFID / EM Tags

IMG_01The core component of any RFID system is the label itself; without the label the entire solution simply cannot operate. It is therefore critical that the labels you choose are 100% compliant, reliable and fit for purpose. All bibliotheca RFID labels are compliant with ISO 18000-3 mode 1 and ISO15693 air interface protocols and the SLi-1 and SLi-2 chips are capable of storing data in the industry standard ISO 28560 format. In addition all labels in our range come complete with a 50 year or 100,000 read-write data retention guarantee. All bibliotheca solutions can read multiple tags as long as they are ISO compliant.
