October 14, 2004—The Vatican Library is pursuing a plan to RFID tag 2 million pieces of its 40-million piece collection. 30,000 pieces have already been tagged since the project began last year. It is estimated that the annual inventory process, which currently requires closing the library for a full month, will take a mere half-day under the new RFID-based system. Seret, the Italian technology firm hired to do the deployment, chose to use RFID tags produced by Texas Instruments, one of the company's official partners. In a testament to just how quickly radio frequency identification has matured, Seret almost didn't even consider using the technology for the Vatican job when they were planning it; at the time, RFID did not seem suited to library asset management. Today, only three years later, library asset management is one of RFID's most popular uses, with many major institutional and national libraries around the world moving forward with ambitious projects.
