The study aimed to develop a computerized user monitoring and report system for the College Library of Colegio de San Juan de Letran Calamba. The system was designed to use barcode scanner for easy and fast access of logging-in and out of patrons, monitor and identify frequent patrons, and generate necessary reports. The features of the system covered organized information of patrons, security of records, and receiving comments/messages from server for pending transactions.
The need assessment of the system was done by interviewing the Library Services Department staff. The gathered data were used to identify the current process of monitoring patrons and printing out reports. From these, the design of the system was conceptualized and developed; the testing phase followed next where the chosen respondents evaluated the system to determine if it meets the standard they looked for by answering the questionnaires given to them; finally, frequency and percentage were utilized to present the results of the evaluation in tables.
Results showed that the respondents strongly agreed in the capability of the software. The system performed effectively because it improved the process of monitoring and creating necessary reports of patrons who have entered the library.
