The project titled Library Management System is Library management software for monitoring and controlling the transactions in a library .The project "Library Management System" is developed in java, which mainly focuses on basic operations in a library like adding new member, new books, and updating new information, searching books and members and facility to borrow and return books.
"Library Management System" is a windows application written for 32-bit Windows operating systems, designed to help users maintain and organize library. Our software is easy to use for both beginners and advanced users. It features a familiar and well thought-out, an attractive user interface, combined with strong searching Insertion and reporting capabilities. The report generation facility of library system helps to get a good idea of which are the books borrowed by the members, makes users possible to generate reports' hard copy.
The software Library Management System has four main modules.
S Insertion to Database Module - User friendly input screen
S Extracting from Database module - Attractive Output Screen
S Report Generation module - borrowed book list & Available book list
S Search Facility system - search for books and members
System Analysis is a detailed study of the various operations performed by a system and their relationships within and outside of the system. Here the key question is- what all problems exist in the present system What must be done to solve the problem Analysis begins when a user or manager begins a study of the program using existing system.
During analysis, data collected on the various files, decision points and transactions handled by the present system. The commonly used tools in the system are Data Flow Diagram, interviews, etc. Training, experience and common sense are required for collection of relevant information needed to develop the system. The success of the system depends largely on how clearly the problem is defined, thoroughly investigated and properly carried out through the choice of solution. A good analysis model should provide not only the mechanisms of problem understanding but also the frame work of the solution. Thus it should be studied thoroughly by collecting data about the system. Then the proposed system should be analyzed thoroughly in accordance with the needs.
System analysis can be categorized into four parts.
S System planning and initial investigation
S Information Gathering
S Applying analysis tools for structured analysis
S Feasibility study
S Cost/ Benefit analysis.
In our existing system all the transaction of books are done manually, So taking more time for a transaction like borrowing a book or returning a book and also for searching of members and books. Another major disadvantage is that to preparing the list of books borrowed and the available books in the library will take more time, currently it is doing as a one day process for verifying all records. So after conducting the feasibility study we decided to make the manual Library management system to be computerized.
Proposed system is an automated Library Management System. Through our software user can add members, add books, search members, search books, update information, edit information, borrow and return books in quick time. Our proposed system has the following advantages.
> User friendly interface
> Fast access to database
> Less error
> More Storage Capacity
> Search facility
> Look and Feel Environment
> Quick transaction
All the manual difficulties in managing the Library have been rectified by implementing
Whatever we think need not be feasible .It is wise to think about the feasibility of any problem we undertake. Feasibility is the study of impact, which happens in the organization by the development of a system. The impact can be either positive or negative. When the positives nominate the negatives, then the system is considered feasible. Here the feasibility study can be performed in two ways such as technical feasibility and Economical Feasibility.
Technical Feasibility:
We can strongly says that it is technically feasible, since there will not be much difficulty in getting required resources for the development and maintaining the system as well. All the resources needed for the development of the software as well as the maintenance of the same is available in the organization here we are utilizing the resources which are available already.
Economical Feasibility
Development of this application is highly economically feasible .The organization needed not spend much m one for the development of t he system already available. The only thing is to be done is making an environment for the development with an effective supervision. I f we are doing so , we can attain the maximum usability of the corresponding resources .Even after the development , the organization will not be in a condition to invest more in t he organization .There fore , the system is economically feasible.
This management system can be used in windows 98, Windows2000, Windows XP and Windows NT, supported for other platform such as Applet, Macintosh and UNIX.
The system must be running Windows 98, Windows 98 or Windows NT4.0 operating system and must meet the following hardware requirements.
> For Windows 95 based computers , a 486 / 66 MHz or higher processor with 8MB
> For Windows 98 based computers , a 500/88MHz or higher processor with 32 Mb of RAM
> For Windows NT based computers , a 488 / 66 MHz or higher processor with 16 MB of RAM
> For Windows 200 based computers , a 700/850 MHz or higher processor with 512 MB of Ram
Input design is the process of converting user-oriented input to a computer based format. Input design is a part of overall system design, which requires very careful attention .Often the collection of input data is the most expensive part of the system. The main objectives of the input design are ...
1. Produce cost effective method of input
2. Achieve highest possible level of accuracy
3. Ensure that the input is acceptable to and understood by the staff. Input Data
The goal of designing input data is to make enter easy, logical and free from errors as possible. The entering data entry operators need to know the allocated space for each field; field sequence and which must match with that in the source document. The format in which the data fields are entered should be given in the input form .Here data entry is online; it makes use of processor that accepts commands and data from the operator through a key board. The input required is analyzed by the processor. It is then accepted or rejected. Input stages include the following processes
Data Recording
Data Transcription
Data Conversion
Data Verification
¢ Data Control
¢ Data Transmission
¢ Data Correction
One of the aims of the system analyst must be to select data capture method and devices, which reduce the number of stages so as to reduce both the changes of errors and the cost .Input types, can be characterized as.
¢ External
¢ Internal
¢ Operational
¢ Computerized
¢ Interactive
Input files can exist in document form before being input to the computer. Input design is rather complex since it involves procedures for capturing data as well as inputting it to the computer.
Outputs from computer systems are required primarily to communicate the results of processing to users. They are also used to provide a permanent copy of these result for latter consultation .Computer output is the most important and direct source of information to the users. Designing computer output should proceed in an organized well through out the manner. The right output must be available for the people who find the system easy o use. The outputs have been defined during the logical design stage. If not, they should defined at the beginning of the output designing terms of types of output connect, format, response etc,
Various types of outputs are
¢ External outputs
¢ Internal outputs
¢ Operational outputs
¢ Interactive outputs
¢ Turn around outputs
All screens are informative and interactive in such a way that the user can full fill his requirements through asking queries.
The general theme behind a database is to handle information as an integrated whole. A database is a collection of interrelated data stored with minimum redundancy to serve many users quickly and effectively. After designing input and output, the analyst must concentrate on database design or how data should be organized around user requirements. The general objective is to make information access, easy quick, inexpensive and flexible for other users. During database design the following objectives are concerned:¬> Controlled Redundancy
> Data independence
> Accurate and integrating
> More information at low cost
> Recovery from failure
> Privacy and security
> Performance
> Ease of learning and use
Implementation is the stage in the project where the theoretical design is turned into a working system. The implementation phase constructs, installs and operates the new system. The most crucial stage in achieving a new successful system is that it will work efficiently and effectively.
There are several activities involved while implementing a new project they are
¢ End user training
¢ End user Education
¢ Training on the application software
¢ System Design
¢ Parallel Run And To New System
¢ Post implementation Review
End user Training:
The successful implementation of the new system will purely upon the involvement of the officers working in that department. The officers will be imparted the necessary training on the new technology.
End User Education:
The education of the end user start after the implementation and testing is over. When the system is found to be more difficult to under stand and complex, more effort is put to educate the end used to make them aware of the system, giving them lectures about the new system and providing them necessary documents and materials about how the system can do this.
Training of application software:
After providing the necessary basic training on the computer awareness, the users will have to be trained upon the new system such as the screen flows and screen design type of help on the screen , type of errors while entering the data , the corresponding validation check at each entry and the way to correct the data entered. It should then cover information needed by the specific user or group to use the system.
Post Implementation View:
The department is planning a method to know the states of t he past implementation process. For that regular meeting will be arranged by the concerned officers about the implementation problem and success
Is the menu bar displayed in the appropriate contested some system related features included either in menus or tools Do pull -Down menu operation and Tool-bars work properly Are all menu function and pull down sub function properly listed ; Is it possible to invoke each menu function using a logical assumptions that if all parts of the system are correct, the goal will be successfully achieved . In adequate testing or non-testing will leads to errors that may appear few months later.
This create two problem
1. Time delay between the cause and appearance of the problem. 2. The effect of the system errors on files and records within the system
The purpose of the system testing is to consider all the likely variations to which it will be suggested and push the systems to limits.
The testing process focuses on the logical intervals of the software ensuring that all statements have been tested and on functional interval is conducting tests to uncover errors and ensure that defined input will produce actual results that agree with the required results. Program level testing, modules level testing integrated and carried out.
There are two major type of testing they are
1) White Box Testing.
2) Black Box Testing.
White Box Testing
White box some times called "Glass box testing" is a test case design uses the control structure of the procedural design to drive test case.
Using white box testing methods, the following tests where made on the system
A) All independent paths within a module have been exercised once. In our system, ensuring that case was selected and executed checked all case structures. The bugs that were prevailing in some part of the code where fixed
b) All logical decisions were checked for the truth and falsity of the values.
Black box Testing
Black box testing focuses on the functional requirements of the software. This is black box testing enables the software engineering to derive a set of input conditions that will fully exercise all functional requirements for a program. Black box testing is not an alternative to white box testing rather it is complementary approach that is likely to uncover a different class of errors that white box methods like..
1) Interface errors
2) Performance in data structure
3) Performance errors
4) Initializing and termination errors
Our project is only a humble venture to satisfy the needs in a library. Several user friendly coding have also adopted. This package shall prove to be a powerful package in satisfying all the requirements of the organization.
The objective of software planning is to provide a frame work that enables the manger to make reasonable estimates made within a limited time frame at the beginning of the software project and should be updated regularly as the project progresses. Last but not least it is no the work that played the ways to success but ALMIGHTY

Introduction to Integrated Library Systems

What are library management systems?


Realizing the important role that the library management system will play in planning and implementing library automation projects, it is necessary to educate ourselves and know more about these systems.This lesson will introduce you to library automation and will focus on integrated library systems (ILS), which is an essential component in library automation.
Post: #10
The project entitled LIBRARY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM is developed as part of the VI Semester RDBMS package project for the partial fulfillment of the BE (Computer Science) degree.
LIBRARY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM is a software application to maintain the records related to Book Purchase, Stock Maintenance, Book Search, Catalog, Book Issue, Book Returns, Fine Collection, and all necessary requirements for the Library to manage day to day operations.
The main objective of the application is to automate the existing system of manually maintain the records of the Book Issue, Book Return from the student, Stock Maintenance, Catalog and Book Search to be computerized. So the Book Issue, Return, Searching will be faster.
This application can be used by any Library to automate the process of manually maintaining the records related to the subject of maintaining the stock and Book Issues.
The transactions related to Book Purchase, Book Issue and Book Returns are maintained manually at present along with maintaining the accounts of the Students and the Lecturers.
All these are to be automated and an application is required to relate all of them relatively and logically so that the current system can be replaced and accepted without major changes and problems.
The application should provide quick access to the records maintained and must reveal the important reviews about the business so that the growth can be easily compared and should provide with the various reports showing the related details so that the important decisions could be taken easily.

Library Management System



We see the existence of the library is very essential. These institutions attract a large number of people. Therefore it is essential to maintain these libraries efficiently.

The present library which provides reading services to its members on the membership basis depending upon the subscription they choose. This membership is valid until a span of time chosen by the member itself while registering. During this period of time he can read or issue books from the library.


Stone Age is replaced with fabulous achievements with science. Today’s world is computer age. Humans are trying to become automated in each and every office need.

Basically automation is an act of replacing human labor by machines. Automation is useful because when there are machines in place of humans then the probability of errors is minimized and time is saved.


When a member requests an item, the librarian searches it in the library. If it is available then it is issued to the member and the details of the issue are noted down in a register.

After reading the book, members return it to the librarian. At the time of return, the librarian checks it the book is being returned within due date. If yes, no fine will be charged else he charges fine.

Library Management System


1.1 What Is Library Management system?

A simple library management system that provides following facilities login, register, add category, add / remove book, search / issue book, return book. Language used is C# and db is SQL server 2000 and SQL Client has been used in code.

One Admin user is already there once db is installed with user name admin and password admin.

Admin user has extra functionalities like add category, add/remove books. These functionalities can not be done by simple user that registers.

Password encyption - decryption has been used in project. Its very simple project where in all the events of all forms have been handled in Globals.cs that acts as business and data access layer. All DB interactions are in this file only.

As far as db is concerned there are only 4 tables
1. Lib_Users - fields are User_ID,User_Name,User_Password,User_Is_System,User_Created_Date,

2. Lib_Book_Details - fields are Lib_Book_ID, Lib_Book_Title, Lib_Book_Category,
Lib_Book_Author_Name ,Lib_Book_Issue_Status, Lib_Book_In_Inventory

3. Lib_Book_Issue_Details - fields are Lib_Book_Issue_ID, Lib_Book_ID, Lib_Book_Issued_On,
Lib_Book_Issued_To, Lib_Book_Returned_On

4. Lib_Book_Categories - fields are Category_ID, Category_Name

1.2 Purpose Of Library Management:
The Library management system will allow a proper computerized management of the library.
This type of management will minimize mismanagement and will enhance the answerabilty of the employees working in the college.

Library Management System


To model the context of system.
Identify the actors that surround the system by considering which require
help from the system to perform their tasks; which groups are needed to
execute the system’s function, which groups are needed to interact with
external hardware or other software system and which systems are
needed to perform secondary functions for administration and
Organize actors that are similar to one another in a generalization /
specification hierarchy. (Registered User—Borrower, Librarian)
Where it aids understandability, provide a stereotype for each such actor.
Populate the use case diagram with these actors and specify the paths of
communication for each actor to the system’s Use Cases.

Each class has some responsibilities to be performed.
Based on responsibilities that each class has, its attributes and
Operations are identified.
Depending on the type of attributes and operations their visibility is
Depending on the Class its multiplicity is decided (i.e. how many other
classes are related to it).
Based on the functionality messages are given to relate classes

To model a collaboration.
Identify the Mechanism would like to model. A mechanism represents
some function or behavior of the part of the system you are modeling that
results from the interaction of a society of classes, interfaces and other
For each mechanism identify the classes, interfaces and other
collaborations that participate in this collaboration that participate. Identify
the relationships among all there things as well.
Use scenario to work through there things. A long the way, you’ll discover
parts of your model that were missing and parts that were just plain
Because sure to populate there elements with their contents. For classes,
start with getting a good balance of responsibilities, then; overtime turn
there into concrete attribute and operations.
