The application of SMS Notification-Based Library
A library management system, also known as an automated library system is software that has been developed to handle basic housekeeping functions of a library.A Library is a temple of learning which plays a pivotal role in the overall development of a society.But, it is a known fact that libraries are not always safe and secure places and they are facing a variety of security concerns which includes the theft, mutilation of library materials and other unethical losses.
But, it is the duty of the librarian to pep the library buildings, shelves and stacks open and free without losing items to make available or putting individuals at unacceptable risk from the malicious, avaricious or senseless acts of others.
This study aims to develop a Library Management System which is more flexible and less time consuming. According to Manhandling et. Al (201 1), Libraries and information centers are very important in the development of any country,Manhandling(2011). Longitudinal spend on the ALMS is relatively small compared to other core corporate systems.
There is an increasing drive for cost reduction through institutional workflow review, yester integration and the streamlining of corporate functions, recognition that the world is changing and that libraries need to change too, taking full account of the complex systems ecology within which they operate ,changing perceptions of what a library collection is and does, including collection and circulation, resource discovery, changes in ownership and control, personalization and seamless access to resources, Veronica, A. T. Al (2008). Comprehensive, flexible and more automated ALMS is yet to be recognized by the community. Libraries are increasingly aware of the need to ‘liberate’ their data to allow users to rate new and innovative services and applications. To do so their platforms will require easy-to-use and accessible services for discovery and delivery. It is evident from the cited studies that a Library Management System (ALMS) is very important in the development of any country.
This study proposes to make use of a biometric device using a biometric, students can now easily transact in the library as compared to the manual process. This study is expected to contribute positively to establishing a way forward for Library Management. A significant part of the study focuses on the roles librarians lay in support of the research process, and the related expectations of researchers. Librarians believe their current role of providing expert advice and teaching on information literacy will continue to be important in the future.
But while many researchers agree with this, libraries will need to ensure that effort is put into securing significant take-up of their expertise and advice by the research community. There are some significant differences between researchers’ and librarians’ views as to the future role of libraries in supporting research, and there is a need for dialogue teen them to ensure that library services and expertise are developed and deployed in the most effective way.

But the last decade has brought a sea-change in relationships between researchers and libraries. Technological developments and the availability of information resources online have changed how research is done, and also the services that academic libraries provide to their research communities. Both researchers and librarians have welcomed the benefits these changes have brought, adapting rapidly o them and seeking to exploit their potential to the full. And they both look forward to further change in the coming years.
Figure 1 – Conceptual Framework of SMS Notification-Based Library Management with Biometric With the help of this system there are new features and process that a user will face in order to manage a Library in a fast and flexible way of working such as in borrowing books and in the process of getting information of the applicant for registration purpose. Here, we developed LMS foALMShe sake of the user and the applicant in order to reduce the requirements that are manually brought. In Figure 1 above you’ll see the new concept of borrowing and registering a mobile user in a private or a public library.
This system is designed not Just in a one directed field of service the said system is developed to be a generic Library service. a) We’Ae chose to develop this system in order to make it more helpful and easy to use in a Library station whether it is a public or a private library usage. Here we’ve included a mobile user applicant in order to make his/her notified by the system automatically when the due date comes after borrowing books in the Library. b) In Bhere there can be no oubt tboutmuch of the literature in this area speculates on the future role oflibrbilberriese of which is particularly clear.
Since 1995, or what TenopiTenor the “postweposted”, libraries have been seen as in danger of “substitution”, HofmanHofmann. The web is becoming “a ubiquitous source of information” giving an “illusion ofdeptoptedomprehensiveness”, GriffiGriffith) that leads to a questioning of the valueovalueries and their collections.
