Proposed Library Borrowing and Returning System for Kalayaan National High School
Keywords:borrowing and returning system
A library borrowing and returning books system are helpful to Kalayaan National High School (KNHS) because the school still uses a manual process in recording borrowing and returning of books. Many pieces of paper are required to fill up the requirements to borrow a book. Thus, this system tends to replace “paperless” transactions and will make any transaction easier and faster. The offline library borrowing and returning books system do not need an Internet connection; hence, it will help KNHS to secure all the books to be returned. This will help them also to have an organized borrowing and returning process that they need to apply in their library. This chapter will discuss the research methods available for the study and what should be used in response to the statement problem in chapter 1, which is directed toward the ability of the borrowing and returning books system to motivate the students to return the books to the library by using a high-quality process. In the planning stage, the researchers gathered information, determined the needs for the system, identified the risk of the project. In the implementation stage, the proponents started coding according to the client’s needs. In the testing stage, the researchers started to search for an error in the system. In the documentation stage, the proponents documented the improvement of the system. In the deployment, the proponents deployed the system after it has been approved for release. Lastly, in the maintenance, the researchers maintained the system if any issue comes up and needs to be fixed or any enhancement should be done. The researchers developed the following deliverables: (1) log-in form, which is for the administrator who controls the overall system; (2) borrowing form, which is the form that users should fill up to borrow a book; (3) returning form, which is the form that should be filled in when returning a book; and (4) history/records form, where the admin sees all the records of all borrowers. The library borrowing and returning books system will help the school to have a proper and formal set in using the library system. The Librarian will recognize the students when the books were not returned yet. In this system, the students will have a formal log-in when they borrow books, which means less hustle when returning them. Upgrading and innovating are the key factor that is for an efficient and convenient system.
