Management of all the books in the library is a bit difficult task for the librarian to maintain all the records alone like books issued, a number of books left in the existing system barcode technology were used but RFID technology overtook it because it is far more superior than barcode technology.
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification system it is defined as the new generation of auto-identification and data collection technology to automate a various big business process. This technology is finally used in library management system.
RFID in the library management system allows faster transactions of flow of books with remarkable security and visibility.
