The Hub commissioned this review of the use of machine-readable labelling systems across the heritage sector to evaluate the benefits of this technology both as a collections management tool, and as a means of providing user access to collections information. The study focuses on the use of machine-readable technologies eg Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and bar coding as methods to control object movements, update locations, enhance security and facilitate access to information associated with an object or collection of objects.
