The existence of the mosque is a holy place for Muslims. Apart from being a place of worship, it also functions as a center for Muslim activities in regulating the life of Muslims. Mosques have many functions, one of which is as an educational institution. So that this function can support activities related to the life of the people and run well and optimally, it is necessary to have supporting facilities and infrastructure. One of the supporting facilities and infrastructure for mosques as educational institutions is a library, which will provide reading facilities that can increase knowledge and religious insight for Muslims. One of the efforts to empower mosques is to seek a mosque library. This study aims to determine the development and trend map of the Mosque Library published by well-known journals in the library field. The data analyzed were more than 92 research publications indexed by Scopus. The export data is then processed and analyzed using the R Biblioshiny application program to find out the bibliometric map of the Mosque Library’s development. The results showed that the number of publications on the development of the role of library research continued to increase. In general, in Islamic history, mosque libraries have become a means of education owned by mosques on a waqf-based basis.
