Yes, absolutely.

Most document-management systems use passive high-frequency (HF) or passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) technology, though the Florida Office of the State Attorney's 15th Judicial Circuit is using passive RFID tags integrated with a real-time location system (RTLS) to track the thousands of felony case files that the court system processes annually (see Florida Prosecutor Uses RFID to Track Files in Real Time and Florida Court Ups Its RFID System). There is a company called FileTrail that offers an RFID-enabled document-management solution. That would be a good place to start. Here are a few articles we've written about RFID document-management systems:
