Buecherwurm (engl. bookworm) is a school library system optimised for the German schoolbook system. Most German pupils borrow 5 to 10 books from their school at the beginning of term. Buecherwurm is designed to speed up and simplify the distribution of the books using barcodes. It consists of PHP scripts which work on a MySQL Database in the background. With Buecherwurm and a barcode scanner it is possible to distribute up to 200 books in 10 minutes. Buecherwurm can be used as a standalone system as well as a network based multiuser system.
