Students of Anchor University, a private university in Lagos owned by the Deeper Life church, mentored by a US-based Information Technology Training Organisation, New Horizons, have developed a high-end customized application library management system.
The app, designed and developed by a trio of 300 level students- Odufote Israel, Nwakaibe David and Ochoyi Joshua handles book inventory management, e-labeling and identification, registration, onsite and off-site borrowing and returning of books, e-tracking systems, among others modern-day functions.
“Some of the major problems we usually have with our library were issues of books identification, registration, and some others but with this app, students can do their registration online with any internet accessible device,” one of the students, Joshua stated during the presentation of the app to the management. The students revealed that they were able to develop the app sufficiently after they received a sholarship from New Horizons.
In 2018, New Horizons gave an award to three of the best Computer Science students at Anchor University. These awards were converted to training in electronics and application development.
