ISO 28560-1:2014 provides the framework to ensure interoperability between libraries that exchange library items with RFID tags, the freedom of the library to acquire or renew equipment or library items from different vendors, and interoperability of a single RFID application from the vendor's perspective.
ISO 28560-1:2014 specifies a set of data elements and general guidelines for implementation, to meet the needs for:
circulation of library items;
acquisition of library items;
interlibrary loan processes;
data requirements of publishers, printers, and other suppliers of library items;
inventory and stock checking of items.
ISO 28560-1:2014 gives guidelines for item security, profiles, privacy, implementation, migration, label design, and location of the RFID label.
ISO 28560-1:2014 specifies the data model, system data elements, and user data elements to be used in conjunction with ISO 28560‑2, ISO 28560‑3, and any future parts of ISO 28560.
