The vision is to provide an efficient online library management system. Online search enables users from all over the world to search for books in the library. This allows members of the library to carry out transactions online. It also enables administrator/librarians to monitor transactions in the library.
Scope for the library management system is an improvised search algorithm. Real-time searching algorithms can also be implemented to improve the functionality of the search. ISBN number can be used to search book details online and retrieve it for the user. All these can be done to make the existing solution better.
Objective 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.
Budget would include initial setup of the server that would include a system as a server and one system for browsing/searching the library. Using many more systems for browsing may affect the budget of the solution implementer.
All the above listed softwares are either freeware or trial version software. Certain features which these lacks may be successfully executed using a licensed version of the same set of softwares. Hence this affects the budget of a solution developer.
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 sorts, edits 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.
