Book arrangement problems in Indonesia mainly utilize traditional systems. However, it contributes to user frustration and dissatisfaction, leading to difficulties in the retrieval process and hindering book monitoring. Therefore, an efficient arrangement is needed to make it easier for librarians to organize collections at the library. Hence, this study proposes and evaluates Optical Character Recognition (OCR) approaches such as Tesseract-OCR and Efficient and Accurate Scene Text (EAST) by considering various light factors and device applications. An evaluation was performed to determine the effectiveness of the methods for detecting classification numbers using the Character Error Rate (CER) and Word Error Rate (WER). The results obtained can be seen from the lighting and the use of image capture tools that can affect the text detection results. The higher the lighting, the better the text detection results obtained. However, in the extraction tool using a security camera yields a better output than the others. In conclusion, the modernization of book arrangement systems by implementing OCR through security cameras could enhance user experience in the retrieval process.


Keywords –Book arrangement, optical character recognition, Tesseract, efficient and accurate scene text, character error rate, word error rate.
