RFID chips for bookshelf

Post by TinaMeineKatze »

Hi,

I have a large bookshelf (about 3000+ books) and in an old library-book I found a RFID-tag, likely to detect theft.

But now I thought of something. Is it possible to stick RFID chips in the single books, keep a database of ID <-> Book Name (Author, ...) and then use an RFID-reader to detect whether I'm near that book when searching for one, or not?

Looking through all the titles manually keeps a lot of time usually.

What keywords to use for further researching this? What kind of tags would be able to be used for this project? How much would it approximately cost? (Not every book needs a chip, only about 2/3 of them.)

Does anybody have any experience with a similiar project?
