RFID in Libraries Conference 2012, Thursday 15th November, The Bloomsbury Hotel, 16-22 Great Russell St, London

  • Later this year the EU will be seeking answers from librarians about their use of RFID to try and establish whether its privacy criteria are being met. As part of a much wider exercise involving retail, logistics and other industry sectors libraries have been identified as heavy users of RFID and librarians are likely to be called to account – on an individual basis – for the way it has been deployed in their organisations. We will have expert advice from those most closely involved with the process.
