Video Tutorial: build a Custom Library Management System (no-code)
In this tutorial, I'll explain how to build a custom Library Management System without coding, using DaDaBIK.
DaDaBIK is a low-code now-code development platform; it's a general-purpose platform so you can use it to build any data-based applications. A Library Management app is just one example of application you can build with DaDaBIK.
Introduction to Library Management Systems
A Library Management System is a software we can use for efficiently organizing and managing library resources, including books, journals, and multimedia items. It helps librarians keep track of inventory, lend and return items, and manage user records. These systems can also have a public interface for final users, allowing them to register and search in the catalogue.
Why Choose a Custom Library Management System?
Off-the-shelf library management systems might not always fulfill your unique requirements. Opting for a custom solution allows you to tailor the system according to your library's specific needs, also ensuring seamless integration with the rest of your information system.
Features of the custom CRM application we are going to build
The application we build in this tutorial allows employees to manage books, authors, customers and loans. They also have a graphic dashboard to monitor the number of loans per month. Users, without logging in, can only browse the catalogue of the library.
The video tutorial
Here is the video tutorial: in two hours, you will learn how to build a Library Management Application from scratch. The tutorial doesn't need any programming skills.
Differently from the CRM, Inventory and HelpDesk tutorials, in this case we use DaDaBIK combined with AppifyText.ai, DaDaBIK's sister platform, based on AI, which allows you to create a first version of the application starting only from the textual description of the app.
