Library Management System In Odoo

Library management system refers to a software-based system that is built and developed to manage all of a library’s internal functions. Acquiring stocks, managing the stock, maintaining the information on the members, and collecting and recording the membership fee, are some of the basic functions of Library Management.

A good  library management system should include the following functions:

1. Updated and Maintained details of stock- the system should have the criteria to add the details regarding new books, circulars, magazines, etc. These should be maintained periodically.

2. It should also be able to provide Unique Identification Numbers for the stock while providing Separate Identification Numbers for the members.

3. Another important function that it should have is the smart search option. The user should be able to search for the specific stock he is looking for.

4. Another and one of the most important functions for that system to have is the option to reserve a certain item. A member should be able to reserve his specific item through the user portal by using his identification number.

A library management system would help you manage all of the operations efficiently and would also be transparently available in your database.

To make your library management system easy, Kanak Infosystems LLP. has brought you a Library Management App for your Odoo databases. This app would make your management efficient and effortless.
