Abstract

This report argues that chipcards, defined as card-based computer intelligence, will have a dramatic effect on both current and future library services. Verifying the identity of the library client, creating new means of payment, securing the delivery of documents, and segmenting the customer base are all examples of the potential for chipcards in library services.
