Library Management System using VB.NET and MySQL with Source Code

This is Library Management System is an automated system that is specially designed for school libraries. Its main goal is to help keep the records of every transaction of the books that is available inside the library. It’s a user-friendly system that means all functions are easy to learn and easy to use by the admin and even by occasional users. It also provides reports to know how many books are issued to a particular student. And with this, the librarian can easily track the status of a book and who has borrowed it. Then, it automatically calculates fines for late returns. This does not just provide efficiency but it also frees up more time for other tasks. At the same time, you are confident that all information is well stored in the database.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
