Subject: Dudley Library Service's RFID self-service library provision with
Axiell shortlisted for e-Government National Awards 2009
Thought this would be of interest to the list.
Dudley Library Service has been shortlisted in the e-Government National
Awards 2009, for its RFID self-service project. The borough's ICT
nominated the library service for its self-service library provision which
Axiell's RFID technology to enable a new service model. Five
libraries were housed in older, unfit for purpose buildings and together
contributed only 6% of issues and 5% of visits. The 'Library Links'
replaced these with a new service model providing a tailored library
delivered in partnership with other organisations and based within four
well-used public or community buildings. Dudley chose Axiell's unique RFID
solution for libraries, which works well together with Dudley's library
management system, OpenGalaxy, also supplied by Axiell.
