Team: Paladins
Project: Numero Uno

Purpose of the project is to create a library management system which sorts the administrators, staffs and students separately. It empowers each with different levels of privileges. Users and administrators are allowed to search and lend/take books from the library. It also sorts the items in the library and lets administrator to monitor items/members and also generate graphical reports for them. Administrator can also send reminders to the defaulters or can even deny membership to them.


Scope for the library management system is to provide a better search
experience for the user. ISBN number can be used to search book details online
and retrieve it for the user.

The audience for this document is the users who get the solution and are willing
to implement it in their libraries.

Solution Overview

The users and administrators can create their accounts based on different privileges. They can lend borrow books and CDs in library based on their privileges. Users can also reserve books and CDs present in the library and also request for those not present. Administrator can sort; edit the items in the library. By using this solution, managing/maintaining the server becomes easy. The interface provides more information and saves time. This is much more accurate than a librarian updating the fields manually. The database is updated after every transaction and leaves no user fooled about the status of availability of an item.

Architectural Strategies

Using AJAX Technology for designing the web page was one of the alternatives. The use of AJAX would improve user experience but was not feasible. Hence using AJAX was limited to very few controls. Using frames to show different pages at a time was also dropped owing to poor appearance. Use of tables was implemented owing to its reliability as tables are supported by both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
