Information Technology has revolutionized the life of human beings’ and has made the lives easier by the various kinds of applications. In the light of the rapid changes with the use of IT, there are many tools, technologies and systems have been produced and invented .
In the modern world, time is short so if there are many processes taken place at same time within a place there is a need for integration of all the processes, creation of paperless environment also ensures efficient task management. Nowadays all the businesses are shifting to computer based system. The purpose to having a computer based system is, it helps to increase the market share and it’s very easy for customers to use. It is increasing the demand among the customer. This project is concerned with developing a Computerized Library Management System using Object Oriented Programming.
In this system the library management becomes more efficient ; easier to handle with its reliable system components This project is related to library management which provides reading services to its members. Any person can become a member of the library by filling a prescribed form. They can get the book issued, which they can take home and return as per the specified time period. The automation of the library system helps to keep the track of issues and submissions of books. Any institute can make use of it for providing information about author, content of the available books just a click away.
The proposed software is for the automation of the manual library management system and provides the facility to the librarian to update, delete, create the record of membership as per the requirement. The users are enabled to access and issue books in the nick of time. We hope that this project on Library Management System will contribute to higher learning and understanding of the subject.
