RFID Solutions

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology from 3M ensures that books and other materials move out of the library faster. Using a self-service system and RFID, customers can check out multiple items at once, resulting in less time spent waiting in line at the self-service station or the circulation desk. RFID technology when combined with automated material handling systems, can also speed accelerate the process for getting CD, DVDs, videotapes and books—including frequently-checked-out best-sellers - back on the shelves where customers can use them. This innovative technology from 3M ensures accurate shelving of various items, eliminates frustration of searching and increases customer convenience.
