Benefits of the RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) System:
Speed:  Multiple books can be checked out at once.
Security:  New gates at our front doors will help us track materials.
Inventory Control: RFID will help us know when items are missing and need to be replaced.
Improved Self-Checkout: Our new self-check machines will suggest similar books and allow you to place holds and pay fines with a credit card.
Greater Interaction:  Automating check-in and checkout allows staff to spend more time with those patrons who need assistance.
