About the Workshop Theme

World over, libraries are constantly facing challenges to meet the ever increasing expectations of users due to lack of funds. Therefore, it is high time that libraries upgrade their services and systems using innovative approaches and making use of latest technology to fulfill ever increasing users’ expectations. Open source software for automation and modernization of services offers a great opportunity for librarians and has come handy in meeting users’ expectations.

KOHA is the first open-source Integrated Library System (ILS) developed in 1999 by Katipo communications, New Zealand. Koha is web based multilingual Integrated Library System designed to cater automation needs of medium to large libraries. It is customizable open source software (OSS).

D-Space is an Open Source repository Software for academic, non-profit and commercial organizations building open digital repositories. It is free and easy to install “out of the box” and completely customizable to fit the needs of any organization. D Space is popular software to develop Institutional Repositories (IR).

The first Public Version of D-Space was released in November 2002, as joint efforts between developers from MIT and HP Labs.

  1. To create awareness among professionals about open source technology & its application in library.
