Abstract: Libraries are essential parts of educational institutes that provide teaching resources and information. There is a loss of library resources due to the inefficiency of manual library systems which are not updating the information regularly. This paper aims to improve the existing library management systems at the university level using radio frequency identification technology (RFID) and the internet of things (IoT). RFID is a fast emerging technology as it enhances authenticity and reliability. The proposed smart library system uses RFID tag, RFID tag reader, ESP8266, and back-end database that store the required content. It automates the issue and return of books with minimum human intervention. The designed library portal gives the availability of a variety of library resources, book transaction information, and fine details for both students and staff. The data analysis of book transaction details is done and data visualisation is also made available to both user and admin.
