This paper will discuss about the usage of RFID or Radio Frequency Identification in libraries. This will highlight the advantages of using RFID in Library management and discuss the various purposes of deploying such technology to use. The RFID technology is a form of wireless identification technology that uses radio waves to identify, track with the help of a receiver and a transmitter that is attached to the object. The RFID tags will be attached on books and the student or the staff will be issued an RFID card similar to that of their ID card. These cards and tags will be scanned using an RFID scanner/reader. The books will be then, issued when the user tag and the book tag is read and tagged. The books can be tracked and the other essential data like the existing and issued books can be kept in records.
