A Matlab code is written to detect books from a shelf and extract only the text from it.
How to run ??
1. Unzip and place the 'Library Stuff' in the path of Matlab and add all the folders to the path of it. (Use Right Click)
2. Run try_new.m
3. Observe the books are seperated
4. Enter the book no. you wish to visualize
5. Observe the text characters
The code is loosely based on the following two papers, please cite the below and give credit to the authors:
 Jubair, Mohammad Imrul, and Priyanjana Banik. "A technique to detect books from library bookshelf image." Computational Cybernetics (ICCC), 2013 IEEE 9th International Conference on. IEEE, 2013.
Suggestions and comments are always welcome
