In today’s world where computers are increasingly being used in almost all spheres of life, various types of software exist in market such as financial accounting ,inventory control, payroll etc. Despite this changing scenario almost all the Government organizations and institutes are running purely using manpower only. There are some government organizations which are fully or partially computerized.
Library Management provides rent of books to Public sectors at concession rates. Stores cover almost all ranges of items from personal hygiene books to varieties of kitchen appliances. The validation of grocery card and billing procedure is very hectic and time consuming when performed manually & leads to error as well.
Our project, “LIBRARY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM” is a computerized version of manual card validation and Book rent with stock maintenance and employee’s information.
It provides speed and reliability and helps in fast generation of reports for evaluation and auditing purpose , keeping surplus stock, maintaining large number of records in small magnetic store for long-long period of time.
A 21st century library serving the information needs of students and scholars at the physical and intellectual heart of the campus. Learners interact with each other and resources in many formats, aided by information professionals knowledgeable about their needs for their studies. A place where both those collaborating with others in their studies and those wishing to work on their own find a conducive study environment.
A place where researchers and members of the community discover and draw upon the university's special collections of rare books, manuscripts and fine art. A place where the latest communication technology enables a rich interchange between learners, teachers and experts in the field and encourages enterprise and creativity as well as scholarship.
In this Analysis phase we are analyzing the requirements what we want to do project. We have to collect the requirements needed to develop the project. For that we have to refer the books and websites for gathering the requirements.
In this analysis phase, we have to design the project in mind how it has to be and what are all the operations that has to carry in the project and how it has to be interactive with the users and how it has to attract the customer.
The project has to contain all the details about the members in the library and books in the library and the details the members who taken the books and this details has to store in the database for this type we have to analyze the problem and we have to develop the project. we have to collect the details about the project such as what are all operations that will make interactive and what are all the fields that has to be present in the database and the database must store the details of all the members and the book details and the members who taken the books.
3.1 Existing System:
1. Existing work was all manual so there was no facility to manage all data.
2. As Library Management/Stores facility is meant for Public sectors , so it should be strictly checked if this facility is not misused by officials.
3. There is no credit limit so people used to buy a number of costly items and sell them out for profits, it should be stopped.
4. There is no stock available information available to the Store manager, so he is not able to help customers. There is no database updation of fresh stock.
1. Single point data entry:-
System provides single date entry only and reduces the duplication of data entry efforts. The data which is entered once will be stored and used repeatedly to generate the lists and print passbook ledger. This will help in saving time, data consistency, reliability and quality of time.
2. User friendly and attractive interface:-
The system is fully user friendly. This system is completely quick access system by providing the some buttons on the left hand side of application window. The data entry screen will be close to the source document to make user comfortable in the data entry cooperation.
In this design stage we are designing our project according to customer satisfaction or user satisfaction. In this design phase the user must understand the whole project by seeing the design of the project. After the completion of the analysis stage the user must design the project according to the collected requirements in the analysis stage. After the completion of the analysis stage the user must continue with the design stage. In this project the user must create the database to store the details of members, books, and reports tables based upon collection of table requirements collected in the design stage.
In this table, one field has been given as primary key in the design of tables because it won’t allow the duplicate values of members or it won’t accept the same id number for different members.
For Book Details table also one primary key has been allocated for neglecting the same values for the field Book number and another table was created that is for storing the details of transaction that has been carried out, in that database it doesn’t have any keys in that because it can contain the details many users can take the book with same account number.
After creation of tables the user must design the project that is it can also represent the design in the form of Data Flow Diagrams. In the Data Flow diagrams it contains the levels that is it has to be represented in Level 0 DFD, Level 1 DFD, Level 2 DFD,… so that we can represent the Data flow diagrams in that format up to number of DFD’s required in the project.
In this we learned more about doing library management in java and connecting Database to it. This project needs to refer more books and search websites for doing this project. This makes an additional knowledge for us in java.
In this Project we learned how to connect the database with java this makes an additional knowledge for us by knowing the details.
In the Library Management System in the future the additional information’s can be add and this project can be run on the internet in online manner. In online manner the users can take information from any place and at any time about the available books and all about the members which are added previously.
