Developing countries like Nigeria face series of defects in developing, managing and securing an Integrated Library System (ILS) in tertiary institutions and Secondary Schools where they are mostly needed. ILSs face issues such as non – interactive, speed, cost, unavailability of experienced users and programmers and also the negligence on security that makes most ILS vulnerable and unsafe for users. As case study, this paper used a well-known tertiary Institution in the Western part of Nigeria, where their library system is about to be automated and Integrated. Authentication software, commonly known as Web Access Management (WAM) servers was used to govern the access given to the users and to licensed Electronic content. Due to the failure of protection for the system against infectious data been transmitted within the LIS, this study envisages these impediments and resolve for the design and implementation of a Web based Integrated Library System with internet security solution (Kaspersky Internet Network Security). In conclusion, the designed Web-based application implements a robust and extensible platform, capable to manage various functionalities needed by both the students and Librarians in a remote and safe manner.
