U.S. Data Profile Finalized: ISO 28560-2 it is!
NISO has finalized their recommendation and the U.S. Data Profile is finally resolved. They've settled on ISO 28560-2 which was the same recommendation in the version they released for public comment. I haven't had a chance to see if there are any changes but will keep you posted.
Having a U.S. Data Profile for Library RFID is fantastic for libraries. Now...all you have to do is put pressure on your vendors to transition your library to the new standard. Interoperability here we come!
I'd say more about this but I'm too busy writing about Library RFID for the next issue of Library Technology Reports!
