In the present era, the Internet of Things (IoT) is considering a hot topic in all disciplines and spreading rapidly in different domains including library and information science sphere. Thus, the library and information science professionals are fascinating greatly towards the Internet of Things (IoT). This study aims to get perceptions of library and information science professional towards the Internet of Things (IoT). The results of the study revealed that most of library and information science professionals who participated in this survey belonged to academic libraries, working on librarian's designation, known (IoT) concept from online sources and from two years. "Not using this concept in their working places" found as the main reason to not aware of (IoT) concept. Further, results discovered that special training was required, Internet of Things (IoT) concept found useful, reason namely "able to integrate many things by one interface or device" noted as a main reason to use (IoT) concept and Internet of Things (IoT) concept will be sustained in library and information science domain in future. This study may be useful for getting insights of the library and information science professionals towards the Internet of Things (IoT) concept and for using it in the library and information science domain.
