This document specifies a model for the use of radio frequency identification (RFID) tags for items appropriate for the needs of all types of libraries, including national, academic, public, corporate, special, and school.
It provides the framework to ensure interoperability between libraries that exchange library items with RFID tags, the freedom of the library to acquire or renew equipment or library items from different vendors, and interoperability of a single RFID application from the vendor's perspective.
This document specifies a set of data elements and general guidelines for implementation, to meet the needs for:
— circulation of library items;
— acquisition of library items;
— interlibrary loan processes;
— data requirements of publishers, printers, and other suppliers of library items;
— inventory and stock checking of items.
This document gives guidelines for item security, profiles, privacy, implementation, migration, label design, and location of the RFID label. It specifies the data model, system data elements, and user data elements to be used in conjunction with ISO 28560-2, ISO 28560-3, and any future parts of the ISO 28560 series.
A source of additional information about implementation issues is provided in Annex A.
