Finally she graduated with a degree of IT. i have a degree in computer science, masters of MIS, and am currently pursuing a PhD of information systems. Am a lecturer of Artificial intelligence, compiler construction, programing and information systems., abstract: For many years, universities & colleges have used file based / manual system to manage library use. Whereas this was quite efficient for some time, due to the expansion of the library and increase in the number of students, the system wastes a lot of time especially when searching for a particular book or resource. In response to this problem, more librarians have been added (employed), and this has escalated the cost of managing the library. This inefficiency, led to the study that was aimed at automating the book keeping function of the library. A study was carried out at Kampala International University Dar salaam Campus and it was discovered that the manual system had inefficiencies ranging from time wastage, high cost of operation in terms of human resources, long search time, data redundancy among others. A computer based library management system was developed using visual studio. The new system allows the user to add books into the system, search for books from the system database, track member information, manage borrowing among others. By automating library operations, the university will enjoy the advantages of using databases and transaction processing systems.
