Right from its initial stages of development, the library embarked upon automating its activities. The Library implemented KOHA – an open source software package – which is an integrated library management system that supports all housekeeping operations of the Library. KOHA a very large user community spread across the globe and consists of modules on acquisition, cataloging, circulation, serials and OPAC. The entire collection of the library has been cataloged and a comprehensive database of all book resources in the library has been created. The database of is being updated on a day-to-day basis by inputting details of newly acquired books. A database of all Library patrons (members) has also been created using the KOHA package. Presently editing and updating of this database is in progress. The circulation processes of issuing books, return of books and reservation have been automated Records for all library members – students, faculty, officers and administrative staff are being migrated to the new computerized circulation system. The package has also been implemented for Acquisition and Cataloguing activities.
