INTRODUCTION:-

This project of “LIBRARY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM” gives us the complete information about the library. We can enter the record of new books and retrieve the details of books available in the library. We can issue the books to the students and maintain their records and can also check how many books are issued and stock available in the library. In this project we can maintain the late fine of students who returns the issued books after the due date.

Throughout the project the focus has been on presenting information and comments in an easy and intelligible manner. The project is very useful for those who want to know about Library Management System.

 

OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT:-

To provide a Library Management System for college library, that would provide all library functions. To improve library uses services and reduce paperwork.

 

SCOPE OF THE PROJECT

  • To make the existing system more efficient
  • To provide a user friendly environment where user can be serviced better
  • Make functioning of library faster
  • Provide a system where the library staff can catch defaulters and not let them escape
  • To minimize the loss done to books

 

PROBLEM STATEMENT INCLUDING LITERATURE REVIEW

Present Manual systems are slow to operate. Instead of using a computer to issue and take back books, locating and updating a card index is slow and laborious with manual systems staff spends a lot of their time on mechanical, clerical tasks rather than liaising with library visitors. Librarians find it difficult to offer a wider range of new services with a manual library system. For example, a library can put its catalog on the Web allowing readers to access it remotely; with a manual system members have to visit or telephone the library to find this information.
Not more than one person can access data at the same time but in Computerized Information system many people can access the same data on the same time through networking.

Poor Data Storage – All the data is stored in filing cabinets. Data could be misplaced due to human error. Data could be stolen very easily. Unavailability of Information

Slow Retrieval of Data – The information is stored in different parts and takes a long time to retrieve the data. In a manual library system if you are not able to find a book of your choice have to spend a lot of time and effort in trying to find a particular book.

Time consuming It results in need of lot of space to keep the data. Possibility of data duplication as there’s no repetition check like in computer software’s e.g. Microsoft Access. Often the books are lost and the librarian is not aware of this. No proper records for the workers, members and books transaction.  If manual record book is lost data will be completely lost.

METHODOLOGY

RESEARCH PROBLEM

 

It is very important to maintain efficient software to handle information of a Library. This application provides away to record this information and to access these in a simple way. The following research problem are exist in existing system

  1. Lack of immediate retrievals: -The information is very difficult to retrieve and to find particular information like- E.g. – To find out about the book history, the user has to go through various registers. This results in inconvenience and wastage of time.
  2. Lack of immediate information storage: – The information generated by various transactions takes time and efforts to be stored at right place.
  3. Lack of prompt updating: – Various changes to information like patient details or immunization details of child are difficult to make as paper work is involved.
  4. Error prone manual calculation: – Manual calculations are error prone and take a lot of time this may result in incorrect information.
  5. Preparation of accurate and prompt reports: – This becomes a difficult task as information is difficult to collect from various registers.

 

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

In our project we have used the waterfall model. The waterfall model is a popular version of the systems development life cycle model for software engineering. Often considered the classic approach to the systems development life cycle, the waterfall model describes a development method that is linear and sequential. Waterfall development has distinct goals for each phase of development. Once a phase of development is completed, the development proceeds to the next phase and there is no turning back.

 

TECHNOLOGIES TO BE USED

 

This project will be a desktop application to be developed in C++ .

 

PROJECT REQUIREMENT

 

Functional Requirements
Basic library management system functional requirements:

1. Book storage

2. Readers Information Management:

(1) Reader information into

(2) Modify the reader information

(3) The reader information to delete

(4) The reader information query.

3. Book Search:

4. Lending Management

Data Requirements
·         The Library Management System shall be required to maintain information about its users and books.

·         It shall store databases for students, teachers and books.

·         The student database stores information about a student’s roll no, name, address, course and year.

·         The book database stores information about a book title, author, publisher, cost, bill number, year of publishing and pages.

·         The teacher database stores information about a teacher’s id, name, department, and designation, address and telephone number.

Software Requirements
The system on which the Library Management System is installed must have Microsoft windows in it.

NEED OF THE PROJECT

The proposed library management system allows faster, more accurate, complete, and thorough results for anyone either researching specific information or looking for specific or hard to find publications. It also allows for a lighter workload for library staff and requires less people to manage it. In fact every little task which was done manually by library staff has been fully automated so as to smoothen the working of library along with bringing transparency in its functioning and improving trust between the students and the management.

Proposed system provides with following solutions:

  1. It provides “better and efficient” service to members.
  2. Reduce the workload of employee.
  3. Faster retrieval of information about the desired book.
  4. Provide facility for proper monitoring reduce paper work and provide data security.
  5. All details will be available on a click.

 

 

FUTURE SCOPE

This application can be easily implemented under various situations.  We can add new features as and when we require. Reusability is possible as and when require in this application. There is flexibility in all the modules.

Library Management Pro is in itself a complete system, though it has a few limitations but it has a lot of future scope and features that could be added to make it more widely acceptable. One limitation is that our software is limited to small and medium scaled libraries. Also apart from Books, Magazine and Newspaper no new category can be added in the system (or in turn be issued) like CDs etc.One of the major future scope is making our system online. Connecting libraries to a common data centre will provide globalization to the libraries, and then the user will be able to search books all over the city and nearby areas. Reviews, rating, comparing of books and libraries can also be incorporated. This would help the user to browse through popular books and make his selection based on the books rating. Also data obtained from this can be used to discover topics, genre and books that the readers are interested in reading! Usage of advanced [BOT]s for retrieval of information about new titles available throughout the world.

 

CONCLUSION

After we have completed the project we are sure the problems in the existing system would overcome. The “LIBRARY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM” process made computerized to reduce human errors and to increase the efficiency. The main focus of this project is to lessen human efforts. The maintenance of the records is made efficient, as all the records are stored in the ACCESS database, through which data can be retrieved easily. The navigation control is provided in all the forms to navigate through the large amount of records. If the numbers of records are very large then user has to just type in the search string and user gets the results immediately. The editing is also made simpler. The user has to just type in the required field and press the update button to update the desired field.
