- In view of such difficulties in library management as the number of orders and heavy tasks, the Management Operation Research method is introduced hereinto. Firstly, the normal situation of library daily works is presented in three pictures, wherein sights of library service are clear at a glance, and the task of optimal model is given. Then, the linear programming method is used to solve the model, and the results are directly applicated to guide the schedule of library staff. And the service quality of circulation desks is evaluated comprehensively by using the queuing theory model, the optimal number of library workers are obtained by model solution. The two examples illustrate the significance of these methods in the planning of library work arrangement, and by using the introduced methods, the efficiency of library weekly works is heightened greatly. In addition, the optimal model can be used in other similar mission planning problems.
