The Project File Details
Library is a collection of sources of information and similar resources, made accessible to a defined community for reference or borrowing. Thus the process of handling a library manually is very troublesome and clumsy. As regards to this point of view, the computerized system for handling the activities of library management provides a comprehensive way to lessen physical labour, to reduce complexity of the manual system and soon. This project work aim to design and implement a computerized library management system. The library management system was design and implemented using the HTML (Hypertext mark-up language), CSS (Cascading style sheet), PHP (Hypertext pre-processor) and My SQL database. The research methodology to be adopted for the study, is Object Oriented Analysis and Design Methodology. An extensive evaluation of the project determines that the project achieved many of its predefined objectives. Nowadays all the businesses are shifting to computer based system. The purpose to having a computer based system is, it helps to increase the market share and it’s very easy for customers to use. It is increasing the demand among the customer. This project is concerned with developing a Library Inventory Management System using Object Oriented Programming. In this system the library management becomes more efficient & easier to handle with its reliable system components.
A library is an organized collection of information sources which is made accessible to the people. The library usually contains the information physically or in a digitized format. In the olden period the access was usually in the library room as the technology grew up the access that was made online (Dinesh et al.,2015). Library is a fast growing organism. The ancient methods to maintain it are no longer dynamic and efficient. For expeditious retrieval and dissemination of information and better service for the clientele, application of modern techniques has become absolutely indispensable (Neelakandan et al., 2010). Libraries can be divided into categories by several types, which are: Academic libraries, Corporate libraries, Government libraries such as national libraries, Historical society libraries, Private libraries, Public libraries, School libraries, Special libraries, Digital libraries, Picture (photograph) libraries, Slide libraries, Tool libraries, Architecture libraries, Fine arts libraries, Medical libraries, Theological libraries etc. A library is comprised of the following sections, based on the services rendered.
iii. Circulation Section: This section provides documents to the members and users of library for home reading as well as reading in the library. The documents are arranged on the racks in stacks as per the Dewey Decimal Classification Scheme.
Library Management System. If user’s position is admin, the user is able to generate different kinds of reports like lists of users registered, list of books, issue and return reports. All these modules are able to help librarian to manage the library with more convenience and in a more efficient way as compared to library systems which are not computerized. This system will be developed and designed to help librarian record every
book transaction so as to reduce and eradicate problem of loss of books and files in the library.
Presently, transaction of books in the institutional libraries have been done manually in most cases, thereby taking more time for transaction like borrowing of books or return of books and also searching of member and books.
The aim of this project is to develop a system that can handle and manage the activities involved in a library in an efficient and reliable way. The objectives are:
iii. Evaluating and testing the performance of the system.
Project product to be produced is a Library Management System which will automate the major library operations. The first subsystem is the registration of the users to the system to keep track of authorized users to the system. The second subsystem is the registration of new books into the library management system to know when new books are brought into the library. The third subsystem is a borrower and return of books which is the major area needed by the user. There are three end users for the Library Management System. The end users are the admin, users and members.
During the course of this study, many things militated against its completion, some of which are;
Bibliography: A list of books and articles to be found at the back of many non-fiction books, or at the end of articles in encyclopedia on the same subject.
Accession Register: A book in which the following information about the book is listed when it is obtained: accession number, title, price and source of supply, date of withdrawal and reason for withdrawal.
Book Card: A card kept in the pocket of a book when the book is on the shelf.
Blurb: Blurb tells what the book is about. It is found either in the front, inside flap of the jacket, or on one of the first few pages of the book or on the back cover.
Catalogue: Contain cards with information about each book in the library.
Contents: A list in the front of most books (after the title page) which gives the chapter heading or story titles and their page numbers.
Cataloguing: The description of each book on to cards as it comes into the library.
OPAC: An online public access catalogue is an online database of materials held by a library or group of libraries. Users search a library catalogue principally to locate books and other material available at a library. DELNET: developing library network, is an organization promoting resource sharing among libraries through the development of a network of libraries.
