FAST Library Management System
FAST Library Management System is a lightweight cross-platform utility built specifically for helping users create a nifty database which contains details about books and students. It comes in handy especially if you are running a library business and need to keep track of the loaned items.
It sports a clean and intuitive interface that allows you to add a new book to the list by specifying the title, author name, publisher, subject, category, edition, purchase date and price.
Books can be edited or deleted pretty easily, and you can also view the ones that need to be returned by different users. The application enables you to create a list with students by specifying the name, address, phone number and book issue limit.
It is possible to view a list with the books that weren’t returned and perform searches throughout the entire database for quickly spotting a book or user.
The program enables you to keep your database private from unauthorized viewing by setting up passwords.
During our testing we have noticed that the application remains light on the system resources, so it doesn’t affect the overall performance of the computer, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality. Thanks to its overall simplicity, even a rookie can master the entire process with just a few clicks.
All things considered, FAST Library Management System provides an intuitive and clean working environment for helping users manage their library business. However, it cannot be considered a top product, as it lacks many advanced features, such as statistics, logs, export options, sound and email notifications for overdue items, just to name a few suggestions.
