Software Model Implemented

• In the development of this application the spiral model has been used and the application has undergone many cycles of improvement which will be highlighted for each module in this presentation.

Page 4: Library  Management  System

The back-end

• MS Access is used for managing the back-end.

• ProjectDatabase.mdb (MS Access File) is used as the backend database. It is password protected so that it won’t be tampered with. Only the owner of the software is provided with its password.

• The above file is automatically updated as required at various events like issuing, returning, renewing, adding or deleting a book.

The Welcome Screen. Having the option for the Librarian (Administrator) to login, for the students to check their details and to search the library for books.

Page 6: Library  Management  System

• Logic and Implementation • Since this is the most external interface, its implementation was the

easiest of all once the essentials had been thought of.

• An SQL query is used to retrieve the entries of a possible admin. The validation of admin credentials are checked against these entries in the database.

• If correct credentials are entered, another form containing administrative functions is called.

• In the check-outs, the student details concerning the library are displayed using simple SQL select statement. This is the most static portion of the project.

• In ‘explore library database’ an appropriate form containing searching and sorting functions is connected.

Page 7: Library  Management  System

Following the spiral model.

• Initially, this form consisted of only the admin login.

Page 8: Library  Management  System

The Admin home screen. It consists of various functions like issue, renewal, return, add or remove books, view student database, view library database, and view mailing list. It also has an option of changing the password.

Issue, Return and Renewal

Page 10: Library  Management  System

• Logic and implementation

• Appropriate SQL commands are executed to update the database.

• It is also checked if the book is available to issue and if the student crossed his limit while taking the books.

• It is also checked if the book being returned was the book actually issued by the student and if any fine is there on the book. Then the fine is made to be paid by the student.

• To renew is to return and issue again.

Page 11: Library  Management  System

Following of the spiral model

• Initially it was ignored that a book could be returned if and only if it had been issued by the student. So, subsequently the code was modified to check the entries in the student table in the database to accommodate this requirement.

Add or Remove Books

Page 13: Library  Management  System

Logic and Implementation • Adding an existing book or removing a book can be done with

just the accession number as all details of the book are already entered in the database. For this it is important to check that the accession number is already entered in the database (using SQL select). The SQL queries used are update for addition and delete for removal.

• For adding a new book various details of the book are to be entered to complete its database entry. We are ensuring that a unique accession number is entered. Insert SQL query is used.

Page 14: Library  Management  System

Following the spiral model

• At first, we had implemented the add and delete feature without checking beforehand whether the accession number is present. This change was later incorporated.

View Mailing List

Page 16: Library  Management  System

Logic and Implementation.

• The SQL query used is select in the students table to retrieve the mail ids of where totalfine is greater than zero.

• The result set is then transferred into a list box.

Page 17: Library  Management  System

Following the spiral model

• This feature was not a part of the proto model for the application and was itself added later.

Change Password

Page 19: Library  Management  System

Logic and Implementation

• It is easily implemented by using select and update queries one after the other

Page 20: Library  Management  System

Following the spiral model

• This entire feature was added once the basic model was running successfully as it was not part of the problem statement.

View Library Database

Page 22: Library  Management  System

Logic and Implementation • Primarily, the form has been rendered functionality by using Dataset

class and the datagridview class. An object of Dataset is used to store the result set of a SELECT SQL query. A datagridview facilitates the direct display of the result set stored in the a Dataset object after appropriate binding of its text columns with the dataset on form load: the text columns of datagridview1 have been data bound with appropriate columns of dataset11, an instance of Dataset class. Then the dataset11 has been cleared since data will be appended to it on further use. The dataset is then filled with the result set of the query .All the items of the library are displayed when the form is loaded.

• On typing in any of the textboxes, the common function Search () will be triggered as text change event. It will search for the strings present in the four textboxes.

• On click of the any of the sorting button we are searching and sorting simultaneously. We are also making the button act like toggle button between ascending and descending order by maintaining Boolean variable.

Page 23: Library  Management  System

Following the spiral model

• Initially the code for this section was implemented omitting the fact that every textbox may contain a null string requiring us to code for every possible permutation by checking emptiness of textboxes one by one on every textbox keypress.

• This was later improved by using a single function search() and checking for emptiness of all textboxes as a single entity.

Page 24: Library  Management  System

View Student Database

Page 25: Library  Management  System

Logic and Implementation • The implementation of search is the same as that of the

previous section.

• And the implementation of view dues is the same as that of checkouts. Hence it is apparent that a lot of code has been reused and recycled.

Page 26: Library  Management  System

Updating the fine

• This is very important feature. Firstly at the start of the application, all the fines of the students are updated.

• The date is stored in a static variable when it‟s updating. Later this update function is called whenever:

1. The student checks his check-outs

2. The admin sees the student database

3. Issuing, returning ,renewing is done

4. Viewing the mailing list.

• Before we are updating the fine we are comparing the present date with the stored date during which it is updated. Then if its same day then we are not updating the fine otherwise we are updating. This ensures that the fines are updated whenever required during a minimum interval of 1 day.

Possible improvements and extensions

• Increase the database library to accommodate all the books in the establishment where this application is employed.

• Increase student database to accommodate all eligible members.

• Increase or decrease the limit of books a student can issue

• Increase or decrease the issue duration as the purpose demands.

• This model is not specific to the CSE library and can be used in the institute library as well as other departments.
