Idea 2 – Library Management Mobile Application

The library management system is a tool to organise the library automatically without requiring

human intervention to issue books, track record of books in library, and perform day to day

actions required to maintain and run a library. Our software solution will systematically keep track

of all the books in the library, by storing the section name, rack number, row number, etc that is

the essential data required to locate any book in the library.

It will allow students and other users of the library to issue the book by scanning the barcode on

the book. Our system will send the student a notification to remind them to return back the book

on due date and simultaneously inform the librarian as well.

Students can also search and find the number of available editions of all the books in the library

using a tab application that shall be available at the reception of the library.

The aim of the project is to automate all the processes in the library and reduce the effort of the

library staff and increasing the efficiency of book issuing process in the library

Additionally what can be done is to store the books issued by students and recommend them to

issue similar books based on their selection.

Idea 3 – News Filtering using Web-scrapping

Lot of people avoid news due to the vast topics present in everyday’s news. Young people prefer

news related to sports or technology while old people are more used to the country news and

politics. That is just for an example, anyone can like any kind of news. We develop an app in

which reading news is made easier, faster and enjoyable. An android app which is used to filter

news based on user recommendations using web scrapping or ml algorithms. A user can create

their account on the app and search for any news they want. The app will produce the most

relevant and popular content from the web. If a user types tennis, roger Federer then the top most

viewed articles will show up which contain content related to both the key words. The user’s

history will also be saved and gradually the app will provide recommendations of the certain

category of news. If the user searches for tennis 2-3 times then 4th time they will be given option

of news from tennis and other sports close to tennis or the most popular ones at that time.
