An Integrated Library System on the CERN Document Server


Abstract: CERN { The European Organization for Nuclear Research { is one of the largest research centres worldwide, responsible for several discoveries in physics as well as in computer science. The CERN Document Server, also known as CDS Invenio, is a software developed at CERN, which aims to provide a set of tools for managing digital libraries. In order to improve the functionalities of CDS Invenio a new module was developed , called BibCirculation, to manage books (and other items) from the CERN library, and working as an Integrated Library System. This thesis shows the steps that have been done to achieve the several goals of this project, explaining, among others aspects, the process of integration with other existing modules as well as the way to associate the information about books with the metadata from CDS Invenio. You can also nd a detailed explanation of the entire implementation process and testing. Finally, there are presented the conclusions of this project and ideas for future development.
