Men has made significant efforts to achieve or to know the unknown from the initialization of civilization. The importance of the library is growing since the use of ICT and modern technologies. Library management software helps libraries to maintain library housekeeping operation easily. In a library kind of environment, RFID has significant potential to speed up library services and streamline time-consuming operations such as check-in and check-out, sorting, stock management and inventory when compared to the barcode-based solution. RFID provides for “sightless” or no line of sight identification of items. It includes the ability to facilitate circulation, re-shelving, and theft detection, and it has several other important advantages. RFID is still a relatively new technology. So far, several libraries in North-East India have implemented RFID system, mostly for self-service and the vast majority of these libraries are positive about their RFID investment and its benefits.

This paper deals with the adoption policy of RFID technology in the library and its significant use in the library for better inventory control, theft detection, quick issue-return etc. The researcher has collected data from various RFID implemented libraries to know the facilities availed and problem faced by the libraries. Lastly then researcher has tried to put some suggestion for those libraries who has not implemented RFID technology in their libraries, the researcher also mentioned some guidelines regarding RFID implementation.
