Data mining technology has strong data processing ability. A library is a data resource center in which numerous, potentially correlated data are located. Thus, library management is greatly challenged in terms of determining the internal value of this information and using it effectively. Data mining technology is used for clustering and association rule analyses on library management systems, locating popular books and categories in numerous book resources, and determining the correlations among books. Moreover, the mined data are applied in library management systems to provide new books and recommendation services to readers and to introduce opinions on other analytical methods, thereby enhancing the theoretical research basis for data mining.
