Essential – eLMS

Borrowing book or resources is very common in school or company; therefore, resources man-agement has become a key in operation.

Without a proper system for resources management, most of the resources managers can only record the borrows of resources by paperwork, which leads to as risk of miss tracking the bor-rows of resources.

However, Essential Library Management System can simplify the process for you and allows you to have a systematic resources management. It allows you to have a full tracking on the bor-rowed resources, including the date of borrow and return, the name of resources and the fine for late return.

Besides, you can input any resources categories into the system, such as tablet, notebook, print-er, magazine, stationary, book and contract. It provides you the most effective and efficient way to manage the resources, so as to lower the workload of resources manager and saving time for the borrowing process.

The complete library management system features include:
