Library Management System.
The maintenance of library records and provision of lists and notices involves considerable manual effort and requires time-consuming repetition of information. Consider tasks such as
. Ordering resources.
. Maintaining catalogues and shelf lists.
. Maintaining an accession register
. Filing circulation cards.
. Checking availability of resources.
. Checking the status of a stray book.
. Tracing all copies of a popular title.
. Sending overdue notices.
Librarians operating manual systems can spend more time chasing and handling paper and cards than they do applying their professional skills to the benefit of their library users.The Automated system minimizes the routine functions required of the professional staff while at the same time increasing and improving the services and facilities available to resource retrievability is increased.
Libraries of all the Colleges are planned to be networked and integrated in future. Software should hence be scalable to all possible future growth e.g. it should allow multiple libraries of the same university to function together as well as provide access to the distributed databases installed at various university libraries.
