Project Summary

Lori Ayre worked with Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library to meet with Library stakeholders and clarify the short and long-term goals related to their planned RFID procurement and to learn more about the realities of RFID use in libraries. Building on this initial meeting, Ayre worked with the Library to develop an RFP and procurement plan. Ayre drafted the RFP, developed a scoring instrument, and also created a demo script and scoring instrument for the demo.  

In addition, Ayre was onsite to ensure demo scripts were followed and worked with Library staff to evaluate the demos and finalize the demo scores.  

As the Library works to tag the collection and implement the RFID/self-service program, Ayre has kept in touch to provide advice and monitor how the project progresses.
