Implementation of Radio Frequency Identification technology in libraries in a developing country like Nigeria has brought remarkable improvements in the services such as shelf charging-discharging, automated handling of materials, security, high-speed inventory and moved beyond security to become tracking systems that combine security with more efficient tracking of materials throughout the library, reduced the data entry errors, enhanced customer service, and records updates. The purpose is to identify common applications, potential benefits, and the challenges of implementing the RFID Technology in the Library. This paper seeks to offer quick assessment of RFID in libraries and provide guidance for researchers and practitioners in adopting RFID in libraries. It is hoped that the present study will help Librarians and Library professionals in improving the return on investment and proving the long-term security of the library, a better designed RFID system available at a low cost and that addresses privacy issues is needed to increase the adoption of RFID in libraries.
