The main objective of the Library Management system is organizing and managing the library tasks. Library is place where all kind of books are available. This is a web base application and only a registered user can access the application. Library Management system is developed to automate the task of entering the records of new book and retrieving the details of book available in the library. This system contains list of all the books. Using this system user can issue book to the library member, maintain their records, and can checks how many book are issued and how many books are available in the library. This system provides separate interface and login for librarian, students and faculties. Librarian can modify database. Using the library management system, user can also maintain the late fine of library member who return the issued book after the due date.
Users can search for books and renewal books online. In the proposed system, we assume that each member will be having a identity card which can be used for the library book issue, fine payment etc. They can recommend for new books by just sending messages to the librarian from anywhere in the college. Whenever library member wish to take a book, the book issued by the library authority will be check both the book details as well as the student details and store it in library database. They can view the issue and return dates of any book and due they have to pay.
Existing system drawback -
In our existing system all the transaction of books are done manually, So taking more time for a transaction like borrowing a book or returning a book and also for searching of books. Another major disadvantage is that to preparing the list of books borrowed and the available books in the library will take more time, currently it is doing as a one day process for verifying all records.
Library management system is a project which aims in developing a computerized system to maintain all the daily work of library. The “Library Management System” mainly focuses on basic operations in a library like adding new member, new books, and updating new information, searching books and members and facility to borrow and return books. This project has many features which are generally not available in normal library management systems like facility of user login and a facility of teachers’ login. The user is able to generate different kinds of reports like lists of students registered, list of books, issue and return reports. “Library Management System” is designed to help users maintain and organize library.
It is used by librarian to manage the library using a computerized system where he/she can record various transactions like issue of books, return of books, addition of new books, addition of new students etc. Proposed system is an automated Library Management System. It also has a facility of admin login through which the admin can monitor the whole system. Using this system student can login system online and after logging in their accounts can see list of books issued and its issue date and return date. Through our software user can add members, add books, search members, search books, update information, edit information, borrow and return books in quick time. Using library management system, students can also request the librarian to add new books by filling the book request form. Using this system librarian can generate various reports such as student report, issue report, teacher report and book report. Books and student maintenance modules are also included in this system which would keep track of the students using the library and also a detailed description about the books a library contains.
Overall this project of ours is being developed to help the students as well as staff of library to maintain the library in the best way possible and also reduce the human efforts. With this computerized system there will be no loss of book record or member record which generally happens when a none computerized. 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.
