1.0 Introduction

  • Background of Study

A library can be defined as an institution which holds books and other forms of stored information for use by the public or qualified people. It is where books are kept and referenced. It is an area of multifarious activity on book management. Considering this fact and the new world of computer, digital libraries are being created today in diverse communities and in different fields examples are education, science, culture, development, health, governance and so on. With the availability of digital library software application, the creation and sharing of information through the web based digital library will become an attractive and feasible proposition for library and information professionals around the world. With the available books in the library, the addition of computer web based application gives access to information finding and will help to reduce loss of books in the library functions. Library automation has helped to provide easy access to information gathering through the use of computerized library catalogue. Digital library significantly differs from traditional libraries because it will allow users to gain access to information faster and work with the electronic versions of full text documents and their associated images. Many digital libraries also provide accesses to other multimedia contents like audio and video. It also gives room to online access if desired.

A digital library is an organized and focused collection of objects including text, images, video and audio with the methods of accessing and retrieval and for the selection, creation, organization, maintenance and sharing of information.

It is a library in which information are stored in digital formats (as opposed to print, microform, or other media) and accessible through various forms of electronic media (computers). The digital content may be stored locally, or accessed remotely via computer networks. A digital library is a type of information retrieval system. The focus of this study is to develop web based application software that enables the user to search for information and make use of it. The information can be accessed virtually from anywhere and at any time. The information contents of any collections can be recorded on microchips, hard drive, CD-ROM etc. Thus this application will have two broad sections. The cataloguing section and the acquisition section.  The cataloguing section will have the systematic lists of names, books and pictures etc. While the acquisition section allows the user to acquire information needed.

Given the current level of maturity and substantial knowledge and experience that have been accumulated in recent years, the time is certainly ripe to lay the necessary foundations for overcoming these challenges by facilitating integration of relevant research results and improving system development methodologies. The digitization of Libraries is aimed at preserving documents and presents the documents for future access and reuse.

  • Statement of the Problem

There are lots of developments, researches and discoveries which results in diverse production of books and library materials. These have brought increase in complexity of library system and it operations. Based on these, a number of problems facing the library include;

  1. Unnecessary delay in library processes.
  2. Too many paper work and replication of data multiple pieces of paper.
  3. Unreliable catalogue system.
  4. Mutilation of books by students/potential library users.

1.3 Motivation

The study will give birth to a new system: a web based digital library service system to bring efficiency in the library operations. It will eliminate some of the problems associated with the old (manual) library management. This will assist in quick access to information and easy communication.

  • Aims and Objectives of the Study

There are few aspects of human endeavor that is not today being assisted by computerization. The aim of this project is to develop a web application program that essentially manages documents as requested by the user for reading and reference purpose.

In this study therefore, the researcher hopes to accomplish the following objectives:

  1. Eliminate manual operations in the library.
  2. To build a prototype for the digital library management system that collects digital/research materials, stores them and makes them available for the users when needed.
  3. To provide access to human knowledge from anywhere, anytime and in an efficient and user-friendly fashion for students and to re-generate degenerating reading habits.
  4. To solve the problem of delay in locating books.
  5. To restrict the digital library management system from an unauthorized User.
  6. To make the documents reusable.
    • Purpose of the Study

As the number of documents in digital library grows, it becomes difficult to store, manage the large amount of documents and find requested relevant documents by users. A web based Digital Library Management System was designed for this purpose. It helps to create unlimited quantity of digital information and make it available to the world in parallel. The system is designed to acquire research materials for the institution and then publish it to users in their remote areas.

  • Significance of the Study

The significance of this study is to enhance the performance of the digital library management system and help to create unlimited quantity of digital information and make it available to the world in parallel. The system is designed to acquire research materials for the institution and then publish it to users in their remote areas.

  • Organization of the Work

This work is organized into five (5) chapters.

Chapter 1 gives a detailed introduction of web based digital library management system which is divided into background of study, statement of problem, motivation, aims and objectives, purpose of study, significance of study, organization of the work and definition of terms.

Chapter 2 deals with the literature review which looks into the work of previous researchers on web based digital library management system.

Chapter 3 dwells on the research methodology which consists the design consideration and design architecture.

Chapter 4 deals on the implementation and evaluation. It states how the new system will be used. It provides a guideline for the end user.

Chapter 5 centers on the summary, recommendation, conclusion, and suggestions.
