A computerized library system for a university keepstrack of all books and periodicals in the library and their check-out status. Checkout andreturn are automated through a bar code reader (an external device).

He waswriting in a briefing paper about the study in library management systems. This studyexamined the systems used in higher-education libraries across the UK and came up withsome significant observations and recommendations. It noted that the LMS market in UKhigher education is already mature and that four main vendors (ExLibris, Innovative,SirsiDynix and Talis) have almost 90 per cent of the market.
