Objective: Nowadays, Geographic information systems applications entered in libraries and information centers and some advanced libraries in the world use the benefits of GIS in general to improve the space and resources. The present study aimed to implement a way finding system in order to facilitate the users’ access to the facilities and services in the library of the Agriculture Scientific Information and Documents Center.

Method: It is an applied research, in which the required data were gathered from different sections of the library through the survey-descriptive method and observation technique for the correspondence between real information and the available maps. Data were entered, analyzed and the results were implemented through the Arc GIS software on the maps.

Finding: The illustrated maps had shown that they might be helpful in gaining a better understanding of the users’ access to the library entrance and facilities in order to improve its utility and efficiency. This is a new idea that just started using it in the libraries of the world. Since the study dealing with the network traffic and the amount of time for non-negative ways, Dijkstra’s algorithm was used to Time-Based Way finding. After creating the database, Determine the shortest path was the least time possible

Keywords: Access, Time-Based Way finding, Agriculture Information and Scientific Documents Center (ASIDC), Dijkstra's algorithm, Geographical Information System (GIS).
