A talk through the RFID RFP (Request for Proposal – i.e. core specification document) by the authors – Mick Fortune of Library RFID Ltd and Mark Hughes (Head of Collections Management, Swansea University), and Karen Carden (Bibliographic Services Manager, University of the Arts London) – Why it’s needed, how to use it, what to look out for, tips on marking / interpreting responses, future / updating

UCLAN’s RFID project – Kathryn Sullivan,University of Central Lancashire (presented by Jeremy Andrew)
