Online Library Management System

Nowadays, an online library management system is commonplace. Traditional methods for keeping track of books are either to keep a register of them or to keep a similar entry on a computer in Microsoft Excel. Up to a point, this is fine, unless you need the reports, which becomes time-consuming. This project is aimed at students and learners who want to gain project-building skills.

This issue can be solved by implementing an online library management system. Data is stored in a structured database. Making an entry, deleting, or fetching data is quick. Additionally, you do not have to be in front of the desk to access the system.

Software Requirements: Online Library Management System

The Online Library Management System is built using PHP and MySQL. It will run on Apache Server. Details are provided below.

  • Operating System – Windows/Linux/Unix / MacOS
  • Programming language – PHP 5.4.0 or greater (PHP 7 recommended)
  • Database Server – MySQL 5.0
  • Web Server – Apache 2.4.7

Project highlights

You cannot build a great project with a weak foundation. Keeping industry standards in mind, the project has been developed. Please take a look below.

  • Excellent normalized database – Table has been mapped with primary and foreign key concepts, it has used indexing (on selected columns) as well for faster searching if the database grows to some million records
  • Usage of InnoDB to support transactions – InnoDB follows ACID property which helps making the data reliable. It has features like commit, rollback, etc. More about INNODB here.
  • Usage of PHP PDO Classes – PDO is a data abstraction layer that offers unified interface to access different database. which means if one fine day you want to migrate from MySQL to Oracle or any other RDBMS, you don’t have to change your PHP database code.
  • Designed with Bootstrap framework – Made with bootstrap and the template is mobile responsive. It adjusts to any device be it large screens, laptops, tablets or mobile.
  • Font Awesome icons – Beautiful Icons that are used all over the project
  • Bootbox– A beautiful bootstrap plugin that overrides basic alert, confirm, etc.
  • Client Side Validation with jQuery – All the forms has been properly validated using jQuery validation plugin.
  • Server Side Validation – Good programmer don’t take chances. Servers-side validation has also been done for all the form in case user has manage to defeat the client side validation by turning off JavaScript.

Project features

Here is the list of features in this project.

  • There will be only one Super-admin who will be accessing the admin area and managing all the task.
  • Additionally, Super-admin has a forgot password feature.
  • The super-admin can update his profile settings, such as name, email and password.
  • The super-admin can add, edit, or delete categories such as arts, science, horror, romantic, etc.
  • The super-admin can add, edit, and delete authors like Shakespeare, Charles Darwin, etc.
  • The super-admin can add, edit, and delete books that will belong to a particular category or  associated with a particular author.
  • The super-admin can issue book for a registered user.
  • The super-admin can re-issue book for a registered user.
  • The super-admin can return book entry for a registered user.
  • The super-admin can print receipt.
  • The super-admin can save receipt as PDF
  • The super-admin can delete the book issue records.
  • The super-admin can activate or deactivate a registered user.
  • The super-admin can delete a registered user.

Does it include a module to fine the borrower upon not submitting the book on time?

Parvez on

I need a bit of help actually from you.
I tried contacting you through your contact form in order to purchase the product, but unfortunately didn’t get a reply.

I ended up developing my own Library Management Project using PHP, CSS & MySQL, but without AJAX & Bootstrap by doing some researching & asking questions on Stackoverflow.

I’ve integrated almost all of the basic modules & I’m almost done with its development except that I want that the fine should be collected by a user other than the admin (say the Accountant).

I’ve created another user with such privileges, but I’ve not been able to maintain the integrity for the fine variable, as the changes don’t get reflected in all the pages.

A small help would be really appreciated.

mailed you.

Bro.
Your system is good but its need more functions. I mean a lot more functions.
Just the small system like that will not work efficiently in real life. It needs to manage the members, the book locations, the price, due days. borrow and return records, fines and a lot more.
I think you need to improve on it and be kind of humble.
– Best,

Hi bro, am impressed with your project, i want to ask a simple question before i make a purchase, how can the reader view the books that is issued. what i see from the short video is list of books available and receipt download for books.
i also coded my library management system, but am willing to purchase yours because i feel it is more robust.So i intend to know how the student or user access and read the books. do they have to download the book? would they have to read online?
Please reply ASAP
Thanks
