This paper gives brief idea about the emerging Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, its importance in the library management system and its working. It also describes about the basic and optional components required for smooth working of the exercise. The aim is to consider how to extend RFID applications in an academic library keeping in view the scantiness of funds and scarcity of supporting staff. The article also illustrates a vivid picture about how RFID technology is acting as a boon for libraries thereby highlighting the key benefits of RFID like shelf charging-discharging, reliability, high speed inventorying, automated materials handling etc. Besides, it outlines various issues and possible solutions involved in the process of implementing RFID applications in Central Library, PEC University of Technology. It will also provide insight for other academic libraries wishing to implement RFID system.
