A Novel Model for E-Book Borrowing Management System
A Novel Model for E-Book Borrowing Management System

Aykut Karakaya [1] , Sedat Akleylek [2] , Kerem Erzurumlu [3] , Erdal Kılıç [4]


In today's information-age world, most libraries use traditional borrowing methods. These conventional methods have some disadvantages such as torn and loss of books, and no access to books at that moment. In this paper, to overcome such disadvantages, we propose a novel e-book borrowing mechanism considering digital rights management. By combining the techniques given in this paper, e-books are protected against copying, distributing, printing and unauthorized use while borrowing and using.

An infrastructure is designed for users to access books through electronic devices. In this structure, e-books are user-specific encrypted. Even if the e-book files are copied by unauthorized users, the key cannot be accessed by the copied device since the target platform doesn’t have this key. Thus, the borrowed book is prevented from being used by an unauthorized user. Then, the borrowed books can be checked via cloud system technologies by sharing resources between devices. Moreover, even if the books are copied and distributed, the malicious user can be found via watermarking. The main difference to the previous studies is that QR code authentication, which is generated by public key cryptographic techniques, enables the use of books on different devices.
