CHAPTER I
PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

I. Introduction
Freeman Dyson has said, “Technology is a gift of God, after the gift of life; it is perhaps the greatest of God’s gift. It is the monitor civilizations, of arts and sciences”. With technology, we can get things done precisely, efficiently and fast. Wireless communication devices keep you connected wherever you go. These things were developed due to greater inventions and creativity of their designers. But on the other hand, there are still places or institutions that have a slow growth of development when it comes to advancement of technology. And one of these that caught the proponent’s attention is the library. Years ago every library used paper based catalogs for finding books, but when the computers made it to the market, the libraries started to get digitalized. You were able to search through the library catalog in seconds to find a certain book (or any other item that could be borrowed) and to make all these items public for computer- and web search.

Kapitolyo High School Library is using a system wherein recording and compiling data are done manually which results to slow transaction of borrowing and returning books. In studying Kapitolyo High School Library System, the librarian, students and faculty are find difficulty. The librarian takes too much time and effort in recording the detailed information of the borrower’s and books one-by-one, checks and update the records of the books and makes a report for the library using a pieces of paper. The students, also a faculty member, need to wait for their turn to borrow a book as a reference for their notes and/or assignments. One problem in this situation is the students’ waste more time in finding books because there are instances that the book they need is not available. Having a manual system, they have the problem in keeping the records because some are loss or damage, some are missing. The information are not properly organized, which leads to lack of security and there are redundancies in recording the detailed information of the books. As more libraries move towards providing services in a digital environment, the improved access to remote library collections is making the use of electronic information resources more realistic and more attractive. Traditional online services had transformed themselves into internet-based online services using web-based technologies. In this thesis, the proponents proposed an automated system for Kapitolyo High School Library to have an easy way in borrowing and returning books and to know the information of the books quickly which entitled Web Based Library. Web based Library is a library in which collections are stored in digital formats (as opposed to print, microform, or other media) and accessible by computers. The digital may be stored locally or accessed remotely via computers. A digital library is a type of information retrieval system. The system features borrowing and returning of books and will show the date when the user have borrowed or returned the books. Cataloguing of books helps to organized books properly. Through cataloguing, librarian can monitor the borrowed, overdue and available books to the user. The system has maintenance for books, user and penalty. The system will also solve the problem in data redundancy, inaccurate and erroneous record, difficulty in searching books and inaccuracy in reports generated. A well organized library collection provides easily access and retrieval of materials. The system are highly acceptable because of being creative, user-friendly and...
