Libraville: E-Library Software
The world is going digital and Information Technology is being adopted to the classroom by schools worldwide. Are you one of them?
The emergence of the Internet era allows your institution to make use of Information Technology to setup a Digital Library also known as an E-library. While Libraville is pre-loaded with educational materials for secondary schools, the beauty of implementing the software is in the ease at which it allows you to upload your own content to the library. Your student lesson notes can be digitized and uploaded to the platform.
Libraville is a web-based software developed to house educational materials of different file formats where registered users can search, study, view these materials instantly or download them to their devices for later study. It allows you to open, view and interact with pdf and txt documents, images, pictures, audio (mp3) and video (mp4). Other file types like doc, zip and several others can be downloaded from the platform. With Libraville, several library users can study the same library material simultaneously.
It comprises of two different ends, the admin back-end and the user front-end. The admin end helps to manage (upload and edit) materials, add new members and classes, moderate forums, check security, perform backup and restore operations, and edit custom settings.
The user end is for members to access and study materials in the library, share materials with other members, engage in forum activities and manage their profile.
Benefits of Using Libraville:
In tables of contents pages and within HTML articles and chapters, you can quickly skip to other sections and pages.
The same resources can be used simultaneously by more than one user.
You can save any journal, book, article or chapter to view quickly next time you log in.
No Physical Boundary
The user of an e-library need not to go to the library physically; people from all over the world can gain access to the same information, as long as they’re connected.
Preservation and Conservation
Digitization is not a long-term preservation solution for physical collections, but does succeed in providing access copies for materials that would otherwise fall to degradation from repeated use.
Depending on your requirements, the software can be implemented on an independent machine, over a local area network or on the internet so you can access it from anywhere at anytime. While it has been fully optimized for Desktop Computers; it is dynamic, responsive and compatible with all tablets and mobile devices.
How It Works:
Front End (Users)
Home Page after logging in. Here a library user sees an overview of his profile and activities in the e-library. This includes recent materials, most studied materials and favourite materials. This helps you keep track of the materials you are most interested in and you can open or download them quickly without going to search in the main library.
Browse through materials of different subjects. The materials include audio and video files, texts and PDF, and other supported file types. Select the material you want and either view within the software or download to your own device. Users can mark a material as a favourite so it displays in the dashboard for easier retrieval. Users can also recommend books to other members by tagging their library ID.
Materials marked as favourites by a library user are displayed here. The user may either view them again or download them straight from this page. Clicking on the yellow “star” icon will remove the material from your list of favourites.
All materials recommended by other users will be displayed here. This encourages sharing among members. Users can also easily open these materials or download them to their devices.
