RFID Policy

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Policy


The Santiago Canyon College Library has adopted the following RFID policy:


  • Library information on the tag will be limited to the barcode.
  • Patrons will not have the ability to search the catalog by barcode.
  • We will not utilize wireless connections to communicate between security gates, self-checks, or other RFID-reading devices and the integrated library system (ILS) database.
  • The implementation of an RFID system will reinforce the current library duty to make sure the ILS database is as secure from unauthorized entry as possible.
  • We will not implement smart-card RFID patron library cards.
  • We will inform patrons that our library utilizes RFID technology on our website and at the circulation desk.
