Abstract: Library staff handle a tedious task involve sorting, lending, returning, tagging, eyeing of books. In addition, library users encounter problems for finding, borrowing, localising, renewing the borrowing, queuing, and so forth. To overcome these obstacles, this paper proposes a smart library management system based on an RFID technology. Using low-cost passive tags in libraries reduces the cost of modernisation significantly. As such, integrating RFID into library management system makes both the library users and staff's task easy, smart, convenient, and practical.
