BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The library is one of the most important departments in any institution, particularly in the academic and research field because of its role as essential and rich source of contemporary and even antiquated information.
The City College library practices the open shelf system. Borrowers are free to go to the shelves to select the books they need. Books are arranged using the Library of Congress Classification System. On 2009 the library was started, with the first librarian Mrs. Honorata Pasigon, now the Head librarian is Mrs. Micka Calilung and the Assistant librarian is Mrs. Flordeliza P. Lomangaya. Before the City College is temporarily housed at the Pampanga High School Campus, as of March 29, 2012 they have 2,927 total numbers of books. On November 19, 2012 the City College have their own building and library facilities, the library is open from Monday-Friday, 12:00 pm- 9:30, Saturday 8:00-5:00pm, and as of January 18,2013 they have 3,400 total number of books. All bona fide students, faculty members, staff of the City College can make use of the library. Visitors and students of other educational institutions with a referral letter signed by their librarians or School heads can also avail of the services of the City College Library. The Library has a manual library operated system, each transaction and processes are done by hand. The librarian prepares list of books per program, daily statistics, library activities, accomplishment report and other documents. With these concepts, an idea of developing a computerized library system for the City College of San Fernando came up.
The number of books is continually increasing for the borrowers needs.
