   This guide explores the advantages of using requirements analysis and use case in a library setting. It is by no means the authoritative or exhaustive resource on the subject of requirements analysis and use case but it will, hopefully, provide you with enough basic information to continue your research into the subject and to employ these approaches to benefit your information organization.  

   The guide will be divided into the parts:

  •    Requirements Analysis
  •    Use case
  •    Unified Modeling Language (UML)   
   Why use requirements analysis and use case?

   An important goal of any organization is to maximize effort at minimum cost.  This is certainly true in a non-profit organization such as a library. Libraries, unlike for-profit organizations, cannot generate massive revenues from sales and thus have to depend on state and federal fundings to survive. When resources are scarce, accurate and efficient planning and analysis of system or process implementation will allow libraries to prioritize and function effectively with limited available resources.
