  • Book request when a student requests for a book.
  • Library card when the student has to show or submit his/her identity as proof.

The overall processing unit will contain the following output that a system will produce or generate:

  • The book will be the output as the book demanded by the students will be given to them.
  • Information on the demanded book should be displayed by the library information system that can be used by the student while selecting the book which makes it easier for the student.
