ABSTRACT:

          The Project “Library Management” targeted for the College Library integrates the transaction management and inventory management of the Library for better control and timely response. This eliminates time delay and paper transactions being marked. The librarian is provided with a better control over the transactions like Issuing and Returning of Books, CDs,  inventory management like adding, updating and deleting Books, , CDs and in the Library. This project’s main motto is to reduce the effort of Librarian and provide better service to students and faculty.

Project Overview:

        This Project “Library Management” targeted for the College Library integrates the transaction management and inventory management of the Library for better control and timely response. This eliminates time delay and paper transactions being marked. The librarian is provided with a better control over the transactions like Issuing and Returning of Books,  CDs  etc and inventory management like adding, updating and deleting Books, CDs in the Library,Calcultintg Penalty. This project’s main motto is to reduce the effort of Librarian and provide better service to students and faculty.

            The project is divided into five modules. They are

§    Students Module – deals with student information in Library.

§    Faculty Module – deals with faculty information in Library.

§    Administrator Module – deals with privileges provided for Librarian.

§    Search Module – deals with searching of information in the Library.

§   Reports Module – deals with generating general & customized reports.

Existing System:

            The existing system of The College Library is run manually by entering data in books and keeping track of all the data in the books.

The different processes involved are:

#  To maintain book issued details of Students and Faculty manually.

#  To maintain book return details.

#  To maintain details of the current books stock.

#  Calculting Penalty for Books & Cds.

#  To maintain the inventory details.

Drawbacks of the existing system

The existing system has lot of problems such as

.  The entire database is maintained manually which is rather tedious and error prone.

.  Time delay is more because the librarian has to go through many records for entering the transactions of different batches and generating reports etc.

.  Inventory Management of the Library becomes difficult as the number of books grow.

. Improper interface.  

Proposed System:

The proposed system tries to solve the problems mentioned above. The main objective of the proposed system is to provide information instantly as and when it is required. The main objective is to make the Library information details more efficient. This system should maintain different data files, so that the data can be retrieved easily and in an efficient manner. The  system is very interactive. It should ensure process integration to the desired extent, various reports should be generated as the need be. This system should also ensure that there is no redundancy in the recorded data.

Advantages of proposed system:

1. Issue and returns of books, CDs etc. can be done quickly and efficiently, so that it provides better services to users.

2. The proposed system provides efficient management of inventory in the library.

3. Redundancy is reduced; loss of data due to physical damages can be overcome by taking the backup and recovery from the proposed system.

4. Because of computerization manual work is eliminated and manual errors can be overcome easily.
