Abstract

Touch Lib© is an innovative library attendance system, which
is developed using a VB6 programming language and PHP to
gather records and monitor library users at Advanced Medical
and Dental Institute (AMDI), Universiti Sains Malaysia,
Kepala Batas, Pulau Pinang. AMDI is an advanced academic
institute recognised for postgraduate programmes, high impact
research and tertiary healthcare services. We propose a unique
in-house library attendance system which has been designed to
fit AMDI’s key functions. This system is advantageous due to its
simplicity and cost-effectiveness. Data analysis from the system
was transformed into useful knowledge that benefit the library
management, delivery of services and future planning of library
extension resources for enhanced services. Since its inception in
May 2018, the system has empowered AMDI library to escalate
its services in line with the vision and mission of the institute and
the university. Touch Lib copyright registration number is LY201
8005 416.
