The Jimei University Library in Xiamen, China, is installing radio frequency identification (RFID) in its main library on campus with assistance from Shanghai RFID System Technology Co. Ltd. and UPM Raflatac, the vendors said Wednesday.

Shanghai RFID System Technology and UPM Raflatac will initially deliver 300,000 RFID tags to get the project underway. The library hopes the technology will reduce theft while allowing patrons to check out books and other media.

Personnel at the Jimei University Library also hope RFID technology will speed the sorting process for library items, so books and other items are returned to shelves quicker and less time is spent taking inventory.

Rafsec said its tags are designed for RFID library applications. Jimei University Library will expand the project to other libraries on campuses later this year.
