Join us for next week’s NCompass Live: “Tech Talk with Michael Sauers: RFID, Checkout Kiosks, Security Gates, and … a New Way to Check Out”, on Wednesday, August 27, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.
In May 2014, Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library went through an RFID conversion process. In one week. While closed. But we didn’t stop there. We also installed self-check kiosks, replaced our security gates, retrofitted our automated materials handler, and gutted the circulation lobby at the same time. David explains what his library did to prepare for this, and how they pulled it off.
