A library in Japan has collaborated with technology company Fujitsu to add NFC badges to its shelves. This enables the readers to instantly find out extra information about the books.

Those with an NFC-equipped smartphone or tablet can hold up their mobile device to a particular title that is tagged and read more details to help them decide if they want to borrow it.

Ubergizmo reports that the library has a number of NFC tags installed in different sections and will be adding more over time. It hopes to encourage readers to locate the right book before they borrow.

Fujitsu aims to promote this information platform in over 500 libraries in Japan. Could it make the Dewey Decimal system obsolete?
