Abstract: Advanced information technology is becoming more and more important in keeping better track of documents, user history and inventory in libraries. In this paper, RFID-based methodology and approaches that support library services and management such as sensor gate control, circulation, inventory, searching and utilisation statistics, are studied. RFID-based technology intelligence can foster the libraries management in accuracy and efficiency. Also, it will improve digital archives and digital humanities in library systems. Barriers, challenges and future work about RFID applications in libraries are also discussed.


Keywords: RFID; radio frequency identification; barcodes; library management; digital archives; digital humanities; technology intelligence; libraries; library services.
