The IET's virtual library and smart card technology Read all about it...

Do you want to find out what's behind all this smart card this and smart card that? The IET's virtual library is the place for you. With your much prized IET membership you are one step away from accessing some quality stuff.
Take Wiley's book: Smart Card Handbook by Wolfgang Rankl, Wolfgang Effing; this book has new international standards and specifications - this 4th edition includes smart cards for passports and ID cards, health care cards, smart cards for public transport, and Java Card 3.0. New sub-chapters cover near field communication (NFC), single wire protocol (SWP) and multi megabyte smart cards (microcontroller with NAND-Flash).

And then there's Knovel which has a great book on Smart Cards, Tokens, Security and Applications by Mayes, Keith E, Markantonakis, Konstantinos; this book combines a cross-discipline overview of smart cards, tokens and related security and applications, plus a technical reference to support further research and study. A step-by-step approach educates the reader in card types, production, operating systems, commercial applications, new technologies, security design, attacks, application development, deployment, and lifecycle management.

Do you prefer to borrow a printed book from the IET library? Not virtual at all! Try The engineering handbook of smart technology for aging, disability, and independence by A Helalor or RFID and contactless smart card applications by D Paret.

Perhaps you want to see some articles and reports on smart stuff? Here's what you could be reading:Haptic feedback control of a smart wheelchair orPersonalized Services over the iTV Platform through Non-conditional Smart Card Technology. Where do you find these? On EbscoHost databases... A few more? Health Care Implementation by Means of Smart Cards. Or........ Acceptability of Multipurpose Smart National Identity Card: An Empirical Study.

There's heaps of stuff here for you. If you have any questions please email the Library at or call 020 7344 5461.
