G. Rama Devi | K. Raghuveer [2]

Abstract: Information Technology have changed the role of the libraries in acquire, maintain and distribute the information to the users. Library Automation itself is an application of computers in libraries to maintain in-house operations such as acquisition, cataloguing serials control and circulation. Effective library automation depends on the selection of hardware, software & proper training to the library staff. It impacts the five laws of library science in providing right information to the right reader at right time. Selection of hardware & software is depends on the financial support from the management. The Open Source Initiative (OSI) is a good opportunity to select and implement open source library automation software without any financial commitment; it reduces the cost of the library automation.
