ALCTS Webinar: RFID: Considerations for Implementation

ALCTS Webinar: RFID: Considerations for Implementation 

Wednesday, August 27 , 2014

 Sessions begin at 11 am Pacific | 12 Mountain | 1 pm Central | 2 pm Eastern and last about an hour.

Presenter will give a brief overview of the history, the technology, and library uses of RFID, and factors to consider including financial, time, technical, consortium/community, and educational
