Abstract/Introduction Manual record keeping is a time consuming job, while it is also difficult to keep books record of students and faculty as the rules for both are usually different. College Library System (CLS) is a computer base library system which keeps record of the books in the college library. The system maintains the record of students and faculties who have borrowed books from the library.
Functional Requirements: A set of functional requirements of the proposed system may include the following.
1. The administrator will be able to enter books information like, book Title, category, reference number etc. 2. The system will maintain record of the students who have borrowed books from the library. 3. The system will maintain record of the faculty who has borrowed books from the library. 4. The rules of books borrowing from the library are different for students and faculty members. For example, the student will pay some fine if they do not return book within the specified period while the teachers do not have such fine. 5. The system will be able to display the report of all such books which have issued to students currently. 6. The system will also be able to display the report of issued books for a specific period. 7. The system will be able to display the report of all such books which have issued to faculty members currently. 8. The system will be able to generate a report of such students who have not returned the books within its specified period and are liable for fine. 9. The time to return a book for faculty member would be an entire session (Semester or Year) while that for students is a month.
