Abstract

Libraries are integral part of any institution to which they are attached. Impact of Information technology on different activities of library has enabled it to offer better services. Library automation or use of computers in libraries for day to day activities can be witnessed in many academic libraries. Library softwares, both commercial and open access are available for library automation. The availability of free software like CDS/ISIS, KOHA, etc. has helped smaller libraries with less funds or that lack infrastructure for automation. In most of the libraries card catalogues are replaced by OPAC which enhances the searching capabilities. The capacity of computers to store large amount of information and the ability of communication technology transfer this information has revolutionized the library scenario.
