DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERIZED LIBRARY STOCK CONTROL SYSTEM (A CASE STUDY OF E-LIBRARY, UYO)

ABSTRACT
This research work on the topic “design and Implementation of a Computerized Library Stock control System” is aim at making the readers/users of the system to know the importance of computers in the control and monitoring of library stock/materials. Before now there were several concerning issues that made both the libraries and users of the library to be dishearted with the system of library workflow. Issues such as the incessant theft of library materials, the errors encountered when cataloging books in its right shelve, the time consumed when registering a member/an individual that will be having access to library materials and lots more. All these challenges will be well brought to rest at the implementation of this research work. Also, included on this research work are an overview on computerized library, modern library information environment, types of library, performance measurement of typical library and frame work for management information development.

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.0            Introduction
Library is defined as a place in which books, manuscript, recordings, films, or reference materials are kept for private or public uses. Typically, a library must be able to handle some housekeeping information such as acquisition, interlibrary loan, cataloging, circulation, serial management, statistical report and references. A library management system software package is designed especially o handle such housekeeping tasks. A rapidly growing of information technology adds some features to library management or stock control system software packages such as features to handle digital-media, e-book, e-journals, online public access catalog (OPAC), a feature to connect and exchange information with a digital library system, an ability to connect with networks of co-libraries, machine-readable cataloging (MARC) standard support.
In an article wrote by D. Chudnov (1999) the founder of the open source systems for libraries project, three pilot library-related open source software projects were mentioned. These projects are the three main components of library management system software packages. The first component is a traditional service such as acquisitions, cataloging, circulation and serial management.

1.1     Theoretical Background
Effective and efficient management and control of library materials/stock has posed huge difficulties to libraries at different level over the years, the high magnitude of material/textbooks theft, the general inconvenience experience by both the users of the library and management as well. The e-library environment

which will be implemented at the end of this research work will bring great relief to the general world of research as it regards library and the control of its stock/materials electronically.
1.2            Statement of the Problem
As aforementioned, several problems has bedevil the operations of library ranging from poor strategy of management of its resources, the problem of inadequate finance to push for the proper resuscitation of the library to electronic standard, the unabated theft of library materials, and the unwholesome usage of the general...
