RFID based smart library management system using Raspberry Pi

SKU: RFID based smart library management system using Raspberry Pi Categories: ,



In this paper proposes System based on Library management system based on raspberry pi. In past days in library student want to take any book means he has unique registration number and book has unique barcode number. By scanning the barcode, we can get the information about the book. Same thing the unique registration number for the student is entered in the computer means we will get all the information about the students. The same thing is Proposed here also but here we are using RFID. The student has one RFID Tag that has all the information about the individual student and Book has one RFID tag that contains information of book. Librarian has that Reader. If the student wants to take the book means he will swipe the tag with the reader and the book is also swiped means that book ID will be assigned to the Student id. By using this method task of issuing book id made very simple to the librarian.


A properly computerized library will help its users with quick and prompt services. Library automation refers to mechanization of library housekeeping operations predominantly by computerization. In this system, Raspberry Pi and RFID to communicate with the serial communication. In this proposed system there will be an RFID tag will be with book and  that  book  details in database and when any student needs a book the student  will enter his Id by a librarian then the librarian will search  whether the book is available or not and  he will update in to database and  while  when  student takes  a book from  library the book is  placed in front of the system for issuing the book to student. Library management system is a project which aims in developing a computerized system to maintain all the daily work of the library. This project has many features which are generally not available in normal library management systems like everyone can take a book from the library and anybody can trace whether the particular book is available in the library.


In the existing system, Librarian use barcode system to scan the code to get the book details and student have a unique number when the librarian type the register number of student and he will put a book for the student. It is difficult to manage by the librarian.


In order to overcome the Difficulties faced by a librarian, we need to Propose on a system which contains RFID Tags and Readers. Tags place on both library individual books and Student id cards. Student database is already in the Database. Once the student Scan the ID means his Complete details about the student is shown. simultaneously if he scans the tag of the book, that particular book is allotted to the respective person database. The whole system becomes autonomous by having security door to prevent the user from entering without scanning their RFID tag which already in databases. If new one tries to enter it will ask permission to the librarian. So that work of the librarian gets reduced.

RFID is interfaced with the Raspberry Pi. If the tag is scanned with the reader it identifies the individual person details. Because each tag has 12-digit unique numbers which denote the person’s details and also tag denotes the book details. Everything is displayed on the raspberry pi display.


  • RFID Tag and Reader
  • Raspberry Pi
  • Display
  • Connecting Wires


  • Raspbian – Jessie
  • Python
  • Database


The project that we are designing is about the Library management system for the colleges which is for issue the books to student and details of the books are stored in the database it is very easy and reliable for the student and librarian for issuing and returning the books. It’s very useful for the colleges while inspection or if any student wants the information on particle book is available in the college.
