Need of Library Management System

Considering how the process is driven and detail dependant library management is, having a library management system in place just makes logical sense. A library management system is perfectly adept at taking on the many repetitive and predictable processes and tasks that are an endemic part of running a library. It is thus advantageous to have a library management system in place, just based on its very nature.

Managing Books

It automates and organize the library operations. Helps in maintaining the book details present in the library. With the library management system, the staff can track the books’ status, collect the fines, generate insightful reports to identify gaps and future needs. This electronic module improves the structure of the library and enhances the efficiency of the librarian.

Features of Library Management System

1. Issue and renewal details

The library management system is able to track, retain and store all issue and renewal details of all the books and materials in a library – essentially ensuring easy lookup of any book or materials that are required by a patron of the library.

2. Fine Receipt

iCreative  is easily able to generate fine receipts for fines paid on the late return of books borrowed from the library. This reduces the burden on librarians and the likelihood of human error in the issue of fine receipts.

3. Barcode integration

All barcodes on every library material – like books and other records – usually has a barcode attached to this. This barcode is integrated into the library management system making the tracking of books easier and ensuring the smooth interface of the library with the library management system.

4. Tracking of book status

The library management system can tracks the status of the book, because of the barcode integration, and is able to swiftly and accurately give information about the whereabouts of a book in question.

5. User Defined Privileges

The library management system is not a one size fits all tool. Instead, one is able to classify users by type within the library management system itself and define what they have access to and not, amongst other privileges accorded to them by category. For instance, a teacher may be allowed to check out more books than a student at a time and a library management system correctly identifies that at time of check out.

6. Export data

It is not enough to just keep track of books for a library management system. Better libraries can be built based on the reports the library management system generates, since it is all data that indicates how the library is currently used, points towards future needs and identifies gaps in the library management based on usage data entirely.
