CHAPTER 1INTRODUCTION
1.1 ABOUT LIBRARY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Library management System (LMS) provides a simple GUI (graphicaluser interface) for the Library Staff to manage the functions of the libraryeffectively. Usually when a book is returned or issued, it is noted down in aregister after which data entry is done to update the status of the books in amoderate scale. This process takes some time and proper updation cannot beguaranteed. Such anomalies in the updation process can cause loss of books.So a more user friendly interface which could update the database instantly,has a great demand in libraries.The goal of this project is to provide simplicity as well as security andefficiency to the management. Its main objective is to provide all thefunctions of the library along with support of barcode reader. Thecontemporary system stores the database information on a local computer,
which can‟t be updated and accessed on a remote computer or a computer in
the library network.

1.2 PROBLEM DEFINITION
 
The Library Management System implements databases to make theexisting system more efficient.
 
It is difficult to catch defaulters in a usual library system, but LMSsolves this problem by providing messages to the administrator aboutthe fine to be paid and books to be returned.
 
When a book is to be borrowed, its barcode is read and is fed to LMS.
 
When the administrator tries to issue a book to a member, LMSchecks whether the member is allowed to borrow books respective tohis limit.
 
LMS also checks whether the book to be issued is a reference book ornot. If the book is a reference book, it cannot be issued.
 
If the book has no restrictions it is issued to the member, and also the
member‟s details is updated with
the books that he has just borrowed.
 
Any member can search a book with its title name, or author‟s name.

CHAPTER 2
 SYSTEM ANALYSIS2.1 EXISTING SYSTEM
 
In the existing system, the transactions of the books are recorded in alocal computer and the information cannot be accessed by othermembers of the library
 
 
In some libraries, the transactions are recorded in a register, and thenlater they are fed into the computer by a Data Entry Operator.
 
 
This type of maintenance usually causes some errors due to delay inupdation and mistakes during large data entry.
 
 
Basically there is no security, i.e. any person can perform transactionsother than the administrator.
 2.2 PROPOSED SYSTEM
 
In Library Management System, the processing of transactions is donewith the help of computer.
 
 
LMS provides a very simple GUI.
 
Through LMS, updating to the database is very efficient and instantlydone.
 
It provides a guest login for the members to view details about theavailable books and allows them to search for a particular book.
 
LMS provides security (i.e. only the administrator can update anyinformation to the database)
