Libraries play a vital role in the educational, industrial and technological progress of a country, of which it role is to achieve a free flow of information from the point of generation to the point of utilization efficiently and effectively.In School of Information and Communication Technology (SICT) Federal University of Technology Minna, Niger State, we have an existing manual library system this system is plagued with the following problems:damage books; redundancies in cataloguing, inability to read books outside of library working hours, misplacing of library books, and vulnerability to human error. We have been able to design a library automation to solve the afore-mentioned problems. The library automation was designed and implemented using data collected from interviewing the school librarians. The following technologicalstacks were used during development:PHP, JAVASCRIPT, NODE JS, APACHE CORDOVA, NGINX,MYSQL, HTML5, and CSS3.




In our society today, the rate at which technology is growing is exponential and information is an important sign to a modernized library. The library is fast growing in use and the previous method of maintaining it is no longer dynamic and efficient. Application of modern techniques i.e. use of technology, has become absolutely indispensable for expeditious retrieval and dissemination of information and better service for the library users (students). A properly computerized library will help its users with quick and prompt services. Library automation refers to mechanization of library housekeeping operations predominantly by computerization. The most commonly known housekeeping operations are acquisition control (ordering, receiving, and invoicing materials), serial control (tracking magazine and newspaper holdings), cataloguing (classifying and indexing materials), and classification and circulation control (lending materials and receiving them back).

In the present time of information technology, it has been progressively felt that data is required and students must turn into the real center of consideration, to serve understudy better. Achievement of data administration will be more inclined to be accomplished by altering the administrations to meet the particular needs of an individual as opposed to attempting to adjust singular client to match with the yield of the data framework.

Libraries assume an indispensable part in the educational, industrial and innovative advancement of a nation. Advancement of the country relies on development information picked up by educationists, technologists, designers and researchers of the nation. Thus the part of libraries in Universities and instructive foundations is to attain a free stream of data from the purpose of era to the point of usage of data effectively and successfully. The present instructive arrangement stresses on study toward oneself, analyses, field study and research as opposed to classroom study. In this way, library needs to assume basic part in the advanced education to meet client prerequisites. Ideal utilization of library assets is conceivable through networks only.

The library is the heart of each educational establishment which inhales learning and data into the psyches of the understudies. The School of Information and Communication Technology (SICT) has a decently outfitted Library with a showy gathering of books, diaries, student project reports and different assets to serve the students.

The term library automation was fully used in the time past for housekeeping operations of the library. Today it has expanded its scope and also includes all those technologies which libraries and information centres use for collection, processing, storage, retrieval, dissemination, and transmission of all types of information at local, regional, national, and international level.

The Library automation web and android application will be built for the School of Information and Communication Technology in the Federal University of Technology, Minna Niger State.


The School of Information and Communication Technology (SICT), Federal University of Technology (FUT), Minna is currently running a manual library system. This e-library automation system is built to replace it. The manual library has several problems some of which are; damaged books, redundancies in cataloguing, misplacing of library books. Below are some problem faced by students and staffs

                    i.            The paper where they record the student data or book data can get lost or damaged at any point in time.

                  ii.            The problem of recording group of students, which leads to queue, delay in time (please come back tomorrow for registration).

                iii.            Little or no book security, which leads to borrowing and not returning of books

                iv.            The user of the traditional library needs to be at the library area physically which most times leads to congestion.

                  v.            Inability for the library resources to be accessed 24/7.

                vi.            In a traditional library system, the library resources cannot be simultaneously used since a book has to be returned by the previous user who borrowed it before it can be issued to another user.

              vii.            Traditional libraries are limited by storage space.


The aim of this study is to design and develop a mobile and web applications for the automation of library tasks to improve the quality, speed, cost and effectiveness of delivering these services for the School of Information and Communications Technology (SICT) library center.

To be specific, it attempted to satisfy the following objectives:

i.        To design a system that will lessen the time and effort of the student in their transaction

ii.      To quickly search for books needed by the student

iii.    To quickly reserve books

iv.    To keep track of student reading culture i.e. what they are reading, what they have read and so on.

v.      To design a system that will enable student read resource, books, articles available in the library at their comfort with their smart phone, anytime anywhere.

vi.    Provide a printing service where student can upload document for printing remotely

vii.  To provide rich educational articles and journals for the students consumptions.
