To achieve the aims & objectives of this project, the main thing is to identify the mainfeatures that involved in the system. In this scenario, there are three types of users; they areadministrator, librarian & borrowers. All these users should be able to login to the systemwith separate logins. New users can be registered only under administrative concern. Adatabase is there to store the user details & book details. This information can be retrieved bythe users as per their privilege.
