Technological advancements continue to inspire librarians to transform the services they provide in order to stay relevant in the digital age. Contemporary libraries strive to deliver services to all community members because literacy is open to all members of society. In the past, literacy has been restricted to those members of society who could afford an education. Modernly, great strides continue to be made in order to provide access to books and to teach reading skills and language skills. The modern library is at the center of these changes. The library serves its community using tools to help community members with job searches and to stay current on industry trends by reading books and magazines. Resources continue to be limited as budgets continue to shrink across the nation at public and private universities. Small and large towns also face fiscal issues that impact community libraries. Academic library and other information science professionals’ ability to deliver service has been impacted by changes in technology called the Internet of Things (hereinafter, IoT). Academic library professionals share a common goal to adopt IoT technologies including internet, sensors, and RFID to innovate services. It is worth examining what the implementation of IoT is polled to be now, what initiatives and programs are offered and what success they have shown.
