NISO/RFID for Library Applications

NISO created a working group called "RFID for Library Applications." Its charge is:
  • Develop a set of guidelines that lay out current best practices for the use of RFID in library applications.
  • Prepare an input document that outlines US practices and concerns to an ISO TC46 working group on an RFID data model for library applications.
  • Serve as a sounding board for the NISO representative to the ISO TC 46 working group. Continue to work with ALA/BISG working group around the interaction of technology and privacy issues.
You can keep up with their work on their website. FYI -- We have a Texas member of the group -- Corrie Marsh of the University of North Texas. [from Librarians' Internet Index]
