This paper describes a comparative study on fingerprint recognition systems. The use of fingerprints for identification has been employed in law enforcement for about a century. A much broader application of fingerprints is for personal authentication, for instance to access a computer, a network, a bank-machine, a car, or a home. The following topics are covered: history, minutia types, image processing and methods, minutia extraction, enrollment and verification procedures, recognition rate, combination with other biometrics, and the future of fingerprint recognition system. AFIS is dramatically improving in the last decade. It can use in Library and Information Center for providing better security. The application of AFIS in Library and Information Center will protect from thief, mutilation of library materials and other unethical losses
