Design and Implementation of a Digital Library System


Libraries have been an important part of the 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 the 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.

Digital Library System (DLS) extends and integrates approaches adopted in traditional libraries as well as in distributed information systems, to yield high-end information systems, services, and institutions.  Here we will explore some of the parts or components of digital libraries and discuss several of the developments in this emerging field.

Building a comprehensive digital library system will help users to manage all phases of the information lifecycle.    Of particular importance is to simplify the authoring and creation process so that a wider population can participate by adding all types of multimedia content directly into digital libraries.

Downstream access allows readers to benefit from this type of computer-mediated communication, across time and space.  Ultimately, it is believed that knowledge will be shared and then lead to yet another cycle of discovery, authoring, and utilization that is facilitated by digital libraries.
