Robot librarians – Chicago State University

Filed under: Interesting — Rohit Aggarwal @ 2:14 am

Biblio Tech … The new library at Chicago State University has one ironclad rule: No students allowed in these stacks – only robots.  Every book, CD, and DVD in the school’s $38 million facility is tagged with a radio-frequency ID chip.  When a borrowed item slides through the return slot, the system identifies and sorts it.

I love the technology that makes life easier and gives more work to IS people. 🙂
