Goal: To practice concepts related to Use Case Analysis.

The deadlines are later than usual on account of Labor Day.

Problem Statement: Consider a university library system which maintains records on its collection of books (both on-the-shelf and checked-out), and on library users.

Task: Each student identifies four (4) Use Cases for the library system. For each use case, identify the relevant actors, and give a brief description of the use case. (A full Scenario is not necessary; describe each scenario in a few sentences.)

Discuss this with the other members of your topic forum.

Part A (5 + 2 = 7 points)

Part A consists of your initial suggestions to the group
This must be more than "Me, too!" or "Sounds good!"

If you have access to facts or other opinions that support your opinion, cite those references

This part is worth 7 points. Each student gets 5 points for making an initial posting and 2 for responding to another posting.

Part B (3 points)

Part B is the final group posting to the Main topic forum
This posting should list all of the use cases and the actors that take play roles in the use cases that your group have agreed upon

This part is worth 3 points.
