Thank you for completing a Library feedback card and apologies for the delay in my reply.
I asked our Application Services Manager about your suggestion and he offered the following response: We understand there is increasing interest among students for the University’s Orientation App to be extended with increased functionality for the wider student body. We are excited about the potential for mobile phone RFID/NFC in a multitude of University scenarios, including Access Control, ‘virtual’ ID cards, and Library integrations. When we begin to look into developing the App, we will definitely be investigating the potential of RFID/NFC technology in key Library processes including finding resources, checking-out resources, and Library access.
I hope that’s helpful and please do get back in touch if you have any further comments or suggestions.
