Dear LIS Links Members,

I would like to know is there any instance of tearing off RFID strips to sneak away with books without RFID alert sound?

I  just heard of this possibility from some administrative authority recently.

I want to know whether you have ever encountered any such incidents in your workplace, if yes, please mention it in the forum for benefit of all the members.

Thanking You,

Your's Sincerely,

Siddhartha S. Ray, Calcutta

Yes Sir,  It happens if user remove the RFID label tag from the book to sneak away without alert sound,to avoid this libraries can follow 2 step verification.

Eg:- If user check out the books self from Kiosk, at the exit the security staff or library support staff on duty should verify the slip and books. 

        Only few libraries use tattle tape that is not visible because it is pasted inside the inner hinge of the book. 

        In some libraries they paste one more label over the RFID label which carries a message or logo of the library, saying that do not remove this label, or if the book is returned without this label a fine will be collected, at the time of returning.

The fact is 10% of books during the time of return only we can find all damages like tearing pages scribbling etc.

Its best to check from from our end the physical condition of books is clear during issue and return

Also see that windows in the library near the shelf reading room and restroom are closed with window mesh net or metal wire mesh, because many libraries may have all RFID system and CCTV but their windows are open. 

Dear Mr. Siddhartha S. Ray,

Yes, it can be possible. Many of the libraries are pasting an RFID at the end of the book, sometime it may be visible, and some of the libraries are hiding it using a logo or book pocket on it. As we are following in the library that all the issued books should verify by the security at the entrance gate.

As concern to your specific point, we have not encountered such incidents in the library.

Finally, what we believe is that a Reader can't be a Theft, and a Theft can't be a Reader.

Sincerely, 

Siddu Huded

PAST THE RFID TAG BELOW THE NO DUE SLIP AND CLOSE DUE SLIP ALL SIDES WITH GUM. NOW IT IS EASILY NOT VISIBLE AND NOT TEAR ABLE BY THE USERS

Due date slip is not durable and the RFID card can be damaged when the circulation staff print the due date through a stamp. The RFID tag can be paste below Book Pocket and do not inform anywhere regarding RFID Tag, because if we indicate in the book regarding security tag, in this case, user can more worry about the know what is this and sometimes they will damage tag.

The library can use TATTLE TAP it's very useful to control of book theft.
