Library Management System is an application that portraits library system which could be generally small or medium in size. Ashutosh and Ashish.
With this computerized system there will be no loss of book record or member record which generally happens when a non-computerized system is used. In addition, report module is also included in Library Management System. All these modules are able to help librarian to manage the library with more convenience and in eownload 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 pdv.
Series of problems occur donload a result of this thereby resulting to inefficient library management. In most cases as a result of human error there maybe loss and damages of records due to not using a computerized system in the library.
Nevertheless, the difficulty in the searching of books which could be termed to be inadequacy in book Management is a problem in the manual library thereby causing inefficiency and time consuming in the library. Also the problem of space consuming erupts after the number of records become large the space for physical storage of file and records also increases if no computerized system is implemented as well as the issue of cost.
Due to problem of lack of prompt information retrieval and time wastage in using the library. Each of the manual procedure will be analysed. The objectives are: i. Designing a computerized library management system which would help evacuate the problem faced in manual library. Implementing the system. Evaluating and testing the performance of the system. This system will also provide electronic means of storage and help librarians keep track of library information. The first subsystem is the registration of the users to the system to keep track of authorized users to the system.
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 first library management system to be reviewed is the KOHA library management system. Since the original implementation inKOHA functionality has pdf adopted by thousands of libraries worldwide, each adding features and functions, deepening the capability of the system. With the 3. The major setback of this Library Management System is that it is a web based and as a result it is not security conscious because hackers could have the database hacked and access or management the information of such user.
A library management system usually comprises a relational database, software to interact with that database, and two graphical user interfaces one for users, one for staff. Most integrated library systems, separate software functions into discrete programs called modules, each of them integrated with a unified interface. Examples of modules might include: i. Acquisitions ordering, receiving, and invoicing materials ii.
Cataloguing classifying and indexing materials iii. Circulation lending materials to patrons and receiving them back iv. The OPAC public interface for users A library management system usually comprises a relational database, software to interact with that database, and two graphical user interfaces one system users, one for staff.
Most Library Management System separate software functions into discrete program called modules, each of them mangement with a unified interface. Prior to computerization, library tasks were performed manually and independently from one another. Selectors ordered materials with ordering slips, cataloguers manually catalogued items and indexed them with the card cataloguing system in which all bibliographic data was kept on a single index cardand users signed books out manually, indicating their name on cue cards which were then kept at the circulation desk.
Early mechanization came inwhen the University of Texas began using a punch card system to manage library circulation. While the punch card system allowed for more efficient tracking of loans, library services were far from being integrated, and no other library task was affected by this change.
The literature study in previous system could give more reference in system development process. All the advantages in the previous system can be implemented during the development of this proposed system. This chapter entails the literature review related to Library Management System initiatives worldwide, at national, regional and international levels. Secondary data will be searched from print and online resources. Foreign literatures will be mainly used and some of these had been highlighted to peruse and emulate.
The purpose of this literature review is to establish the potential topics and suggest ideas for another research, reporting published materials on existing conceptual framework, theories, techniques, processes, styles and instruments of other researchers related to the topic under investigation. It will help analyse scope of study and in determining the various variables to be included. The approach to literature review is the browse method where print and electronic sources were looked at, read and digested, looking for some relevancy, appropriateness and usefulness of the topic at hand.
Predetermined keywords to be used during this search are library, virtual library, system, hybrid library, library management initiatives, library management problems, library management research, library services, resource sharing, distributed information systdm, online databases, library automation, library systems, mobile information access, information professionals, librarian, global access, repositories and free, management systems, library integrated system, database system administration DBSA.
