Radio Frequency Identification in short RFID belongs to technology referred to as Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC). The RFID tag operates at 13.56 MHz, and the tag contains a microchip and an antenna. RFID readers can read multiple RFID tags instantaneously at near-proximity through radio wave. RFID helps to save time with maximum accuracy in the circulation counter. Stock verification through RFID system can be done efficiently and accurately, with the help of RFID handheld reader. Theft detection is one of the most valuable features of RFID system.
Assam Don Bosco University presently has two campuses. Both the campuses has its individual library system. RFID system has been installed in both the campus libraries. The paper discusses the whole process of the installation of RFID system and its benefits in the library. The researcher has also given some suggestions which can be considered before going for RFID installation in the library.
