California Library RFID Survey

Infopeople and the Information Technology Section of the California Library Association conducted a survey of California libraries on their use of, or interest in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).
Of the 345 libraries invited to particpate, 113 libraries completed the survey. Of the 113, seven of them had implemented RFID systems. Another five were not familiar with the term "RFID."
