To describe the first year of the implementation of radio frequency identification (RFID) in Middlesex University Learning Resources.
The technology is explained in detail to set the scene. Information on the implementation is presented in chronological order.
Problems which would generally be applicable to other installations in these early days of the use of RFID in libraries are pointed out.
It is possible to implement RFID without too much lead time, although, had longer been available, some aspects would have gone more smoothly.
Contains valuable information for other libraries considering or intending to introduce RFID.
