INTRODUCTION

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION:

This chapter gives an overview about the aim, objectives, background and operation environment of the system.

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Library ManagementSystem is an application which refers to library systems which are generally small or medium in size.
