Chapter 1 – Introduction Company Profile Cainta Catholic College enhances theoretical learning by providing computer laboratories that is updated and procured for the students use to develop their creative skills, and leadership potentials and train them to become useful, productive and gainfully employed members of the society. The Library system of Cainta Catholic College is still a manual way of logging in, borrowing books, and etc. By using a record book and a pen you can now log-in or you it’s your choice whether you want to log-in or not.
The cataloging is also manual (organized) it is placed in a box where f you want to search for a certain book, you need to look for the book code or the author of the book and find it in the alphabetized arrangement of the catalogue. In our existing system all the transaction of books are done manually, So taking more time for a transaction like borrowing a book or returning a book and also for searching of members and books. Another major disadvantage is that to preparing the list of books borrowed and the available books in the library will take more time, currently it is doing as a one day process for verifying all records.
So after conducting he feasibility study we decided to make the manual Library management system to be computerized. Abstract The library system that we are currently using in Cainta Catholic College is a manual process. When logging-in in the library you Just need to write down your name, what time you logged-in, and your signature to log-in and you can even slip away without logging-in in that record book and when it comes to cataloging, it is still manual process, it’s located in a certain box and alphabetically organized where if you want to search for a book you Just need to look for the book code or author or the title of he book.
When it comes in borrowing, they Just need to surrender their library ID and sign a certain library card at the back of the book We are proposing for a computerized library system where you Just need to tap your ID and voila you’re officially logged-in. If you want to search for a book, you don’t have to search for so long in that cataloging box, you Just need to type the author or book code or search it in which it is categorized.
In this type of searching, students will have an easy, hassle free way of finding the book they need. This system will help student to easily find ooks and easy way of logging-in. statement 0T tne ProDlem General Problem: How to improve the current library system of Cainta Catholic College?
