DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A DIGITAL LIBRARY SYSTEM. A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION
Libraries have been an important part of educational and information sector of any school. The success of any library largely depends on proper management.
Several libraries have suffered failure as a result of inadequate management and incapacitations in handling sensitive information as regards members of the library.
This research therefore, aimed at developing a digital library system, which will help direct and position library to meets its ever increasing demands.
In the course of the development of this new system, the current system was analytically and critically studied or assessed and thus the identified strengths and weaknesses were highlighted and a new system was designed for the weakness.
The present system was analyzed using a standard procedure recognized worldwide for such purpose and this is called Structured System Analysis and Design Methodology (SSADM). The visual basic 6.0 programming language was used to code the program modules developed for the system using some computer aided design tools.
