LIBRARY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM ABSTRACT The project titled Library management system is Library management software for monitoring and controlling the transactions in a library. The project “Library Management System” is developed in java, which 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. “Library Management System” is a web based application written for Windows operating systems, designed to help users maintain and organize library.
Our software is easy to use for both beginners and advanced users. It features a familiar and well thought-out, an attractive user interface, combined with searching Insertion and reporting capabilities. The report generation facility of library system helps to get a good idea of which are the books borrowed by the members, makes users possible to generate reports’ hard copy. EXISTING SYSTEM 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 members and 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. So after conducting the feasibility study we decided to make the manual Library Management System to be computerized. DISADVANTAGES OF CURRENT SYSTEM * The current system is very time consuming. * It is very difficult to generate report manually. * A Chance of losing the gathered data is more. Sending the report through post is time consuming. * It reduces the burden of collecting the information on staff. PROPOSED SYSTEM Proposed system is an automated Library Management System.
Through our software user can add members, add books, search members, search books, update information, edit information, borrow and return books in quick time. Our Proposed system has the following advantages. * User friendly interface * Fast access to database * Less error More Storage Capacity * Search Facility REQUIREMENTS SPECIFICATION Hardware requirements: Machine: Pentium 4 or higher Primary memory : 128MB or above Secondary memory: 100MB of free space Monitor: VGA color Software requirements: Operating System:Windows XP and higher Browser:Internet Explorer 8 and higher Web/Application server:Apache tomcat server 7. 0 Database: Mysql-essential – 5. 1. 30 Languages:JSP, HTML IDE:Eclipse Helios MODULES: * Admin * Member MODULE DESCRIPTION:
