Automation

Library automation refers to the use of a computer to automate the typical procedures of libraries such as Acquisition, Cataloguing and Circulation, Serial Control and others. Automation is a process of using the machinery for easily working and saving the human power and time. The main purpose of library automation is to free the librarians and library staff and to allow them to contribute more meaningfully to spread of knowledge and Information.

To turn a library into an automated system from a traditional library we need first some automation tool or better-said automation software. There are many automation software available in the market like ‘Alexandria’, ‘Koha’, ‘Evergreen’, ‘Libsys’, ‘Libsoft’, ‘Millennium’, ISO 2709′, ‘MARC standards’, ‘MetaLib’, ‘Lura Tech’, ‘Z39.50’ and much more. Some are paid and some are open source. From all these software Koha is making a revolution in automation. Open source is the most important feature of Koha. Open source permits you to customise it according to you. Here I have provided some tips and tricks for implement Koha and after that some customisation and setting up various parameters and modules and after that how to use it.

  2. Can I simply say that of a relief to uncover one who actually knows what theyre speaking about over the internet. You certainly know how to bring a concern to light to make it essential. Lots more people should check out this and can see this side from the story. I cant think youre not more well-known since you also absolutely develop the gift.

  7. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!

  8. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I found this during my search for something relating to this.
