Change is the law of the world and it can take a step towards development, be it in person, institution, or in thing. If the library is known as an institution that serves the community i.e. the university of the people then the library also needs to change over time. The most important inventions of the present time are computers and computer technology, if we talk about this technology in the context of libraries, a new age of computing technology that many people refer to as the Internet of Things (IoT). The present study was conducted with the main objectives of finding out how and how much the Internet of Things (IoT) is used in library functions, and how it helps in providing various library services to the user. What are current IoT applications and IoT examples? What is its future? In view of this, how it can be effective in the activity of the library, as well as how the five laws of Dr. Ranganathan can be fruitful in the present time is considered here. In short, this study provides the first overview of IoT and trends of computer technology as well as the modern library structure.
