Integrated Library Management Systems

An Indian Scenario of Modern Library Automation

By Hilal Ahmed

The selection of an appropriate integrated library management system for automating libraries has been a challenging task for Indian librarians. Even though a number of indigenous library management softwares were developed, only those compatible with international standards survived. The implementation of integrated library management systems demands a widespread training of librarians for systematic change in their work environment. This book gives a detailed description of library automation, both at Indigenous and global level, from its traditional to modern period. It sheds light on the present picture of automated library system of college and university libraries in India. Apart from highlighting the different modules of various popular library management systems and the user satisfaction with these automated systems, this book also brings into focus the technical expertise of Indian librarians in managing these integrated library management systems. Since an effort has been made to highlight the pros and cons of these systems and the issues faced by the Indian librarians in automating libraries, it is anticipated that this book will serve as a tool for university and college librarians in selecting the integrated library management system that will suit their requirements for effective and efficient automation of their operations and services.
