Sitterwerk Art Library in St. Gallen has developed guided RFID technology to implement book stack management since 2010. This means that the 12,000 books do not have a fixed shelving place and are no longer shelved according to their call numbers. Yet, users can easily find their locations at any time via the catalog. This is a result of a technology known as "Dynamic Order", which enables a new and personal use of the Library. Additionally, tables equipped with RFID reading antennas allow documentation of work processes that make use of books and material samples collected by the Library. The documented information then facilitates real-time networking with other researchers via a web platform. This presentation will bring in innovative ideas of how libraries can use simple technical interventions to make them more networked with users. [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
