This is an exciting time in the evolution of RFID (radio frequency identification) technology for libraries. National and international committees will soon finalize a number of important standards. The new standards will improve the interoperability and flexibility of library RFID systems and make the technology even more valuable.
You’ve decided it’s right for your library system and you’d like to start moving toward implementation. How do you decide what kind of RFID system works for you? How do you go about funding and implementing that system? And how do you protect your investment?
As a component of the 3M™ RFID System, your staff can utilise the mobile staff workstation to provide service to your customers wherever they need it in your library. The mobile staff workstation uses your library’s wireless network to communicate with your ILS system’s SIP server.
Rewritable tags from 3M help libraries increase efficiency and productivity while maintaining security. Built for the demanding application of today's libraries we provide a warranty on our tags, guaranteeing them to last as long as they items to which they are attached.
Save time and money with the flexibility to print both the barcode and library logo on an RFID tag right in the library. With an intuitive interface and user friendly setup, your staff will quickly learn how to convert tags and begin realizing the benefits of RFID immediately.
As a component of the 3M™ RFID System, these versatile units can operate as a circulation desk or tag programming station. In addition to handling multiple items at the same time, the workstation processes both barcodes and RFID tags at checkout and return, and the ‘case set’ feature prevents item substitution during checkout and return.
Staff Workstation Model 946
Combines barcode scanning and security into one operation, improving workplace efficiency and ergonomics. It processes both barcodes and RFID tags, and can perform smaller scale barcode-to-RFID conversions.
The 3M RFID Detection System Model 9100 combines flexibility and style with state-of-the-art technology to help provide excellent detection and reliability. The Model 9100 has an attractive clear corridor system with flexible lighting. The system meets ADA requirements has a variety of flexible mounting options - direct mount or base plate to better meet your needs.
The R-Series lets library customers easily check out and check in materials. It reads barcodes and 3M™ RFID Tags and processes multiple items simultaneously. With customizable design and feature options the R-series can be made to meet your library’s needs
The 3M™ Kiosk SelfCheck™ System has a multiple-item checkout, check in and renew feature, easy to use interface and unique colour changing RFID ledge, customers can enjoy workflow and staff can be sure items are checked out and returned correctly.
With enhanced aesthetics, the new mini tracking pad looks great on a desk or counter top and includes several new features including user interface lights for a quick confirmation of a successful transaction or event.
Increase the productivity and performance of your library staff and equipment with the 3M™ Command Centre. The 3M Command Centre works with currently available 3M Self-Service systems, AMH systems and with some 3M RFID Detection Systems.
