How to deal with the library internal borrowing?

algatross

Example: When a student visits the library and asks for a book to read while in library, then the book is not available. When he finishes reading he returns back the book, the the book is available again.
The problem is that when somebody else asks for the same book which is used now by another student inside the library. How can I know if the book is available?

Is there a feature in NewGenLib which handles this case??

Thank you

Mohammad

Dear sir,

Its possible only when u keep records of every books read in the library... This can be done but it will increase workload drastically. Generally it is feature of an closed access system where librarian hands over the book to the student. If your system is open access it will be difficult to implement this. Even if you want to do that you can issue the books to students and return when they return it. but for that you will need to create a special collection. this system wont work on general books as students get issues books for their home also and if they have already issued the books of their limits, system wont allow it.
