Integrated Technology Group. Flexible ITG RFID Technology Allows Warren-Newport Public Library to Adapt to Changing Conditions. As an early adopter of RFID, the Warren-Newport Public Library (IL) could have found itself in the same boat as others who implemented the technology before any library RFID standards were established. The majority of libraries that migrated to RFID in or before 2003, the year that Warren-Newport made its move, came to learn that their proprietary systems could not be adapted to the ISO technology standard. And if a transition path were available, it would require expensive new hardware, retagging the collection, or both. On the other hand, Warren-Newport, like other libraries that chose ITG as their RFID vendor, was able to seamlessly transition from its original proprietary system to an ISO based system and it didn’t cost them a dime.
