The project Network Based Library Management System Facilitates the more security using the Java technologies. The aim of the research work is to develop Network Based Library Management System for issuing BOOKS to students, teachers, by using existing Campus Network infrastructure By Using Advance Technology and make the library system more effective and efficient.
Network Based Library Management System is used to provide a medium for the libraries to computerize their entire functioning and would contribute as a first step in digitalizing their libraries. Everything in this project works under networking. The server pc has the entire records of the books. All pc’s are connected to the server. Even if the required information was found it was usually at cost of much valuable time. This LAN based Library management is would not only simplify this process but also speedup the entire functioning of the library. It will also contribute towards increasing the efficiency of the libraries a whole, right from the data entry to maintaining the historical records, student records, book records, etc. It is to provide user or the library members or agents to the opportunity to not only search through the books online but to reserve books that are issued by other users and also request newer books and latest syllabus books.
Advantages of this project:
The Library in charge maintaining library records manually.
But this software can easily put data of all faculties, students quickly with the security.
A number of thousands books, Magazines and research papers can be issued and managed by this software.
Flexible – Customizable components are tailored to accommodate the requirements of institutions of all types and sizes.
Easy to use – User-friendly workflows and intuitive graphical interfaces increase staff and patron efficiency.

The Network Based Library Management System is application for primarily providing training to the employees who provide customized solutions to meet organizational needs. Library Management Systemis one of the most tedious processes, which involves the regular updating of many files and records. As new members enroll for membership the management has to issue a unique membership code for that member. For this they have to keep a track of many records such as student details, book details and maintain a number of registers. Doing this manually involves a lot of time and labor. Hence this can be made easy through automation.
