Library Management System

A library is a structured and organized assembly of information. A lot of books, magazines, manuscripts, maps, films, etc. are stored in a library and is available for borrowing or reference. Some of the typical challenges faced in a library are:

     Huge amount of scattered data
     System which lacks transparency
     Immense amount of manual work to keep track of the books, publishers, etc.
     Difficulty to refer and track old data
     Keeping track of the location of each and every information available
