Some of these transactions include record keeping of the books and student and employee borrowers. However, many school libraries are still operated manually by librarians and library assistants.
Our proposed system, the Library Management System, is a system wherein library transactions will no longer need manual operation. This will carry out different processes in managing school libraries like library catalog for easier book searching, keeping records of books, student borrowers, books borrowed, return of books, overdue and balances of books borrowed and automatic fine fees calculation. This will be made easier through the use of barcode scanner. In additional to this, it will be paperless except for the printed receipts that can be provided for those who have record balances.
