This paper outlines a concept of employing intelligent agents to simulate, construct and deploy a Smart Library System for an educational facility. Discussion into the many technical challenges driving the concept, ideas behind this approach and the final design rationale are examined. The design model of the Smart Library System that uses Multi-agent simulation and distributed middleware frameworks can be successfully applied to many similar application areas as a means of automating a wide variety of asset monitoring and control tasks in both traditional and distributed systems concerns. Educational environments containing material such as books, multimedia and laboratory equipment can benefit from the proposed software solution allowing such assets to be efficiently managed and monitored. This subsequently would improve the quality of teaching and training support.
