Our central library is fully digital. We use world’s best library management software Koha which is a fully featured, scalable library management system that enables the students to access the library from where he/she is. Through Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) students can search the Library database to know the status of the Library Book. One can search this OPAC by entering the Name of the Title, Name of the Author, Call Number and Accession Number of the Book. Since the original implementation in 1999, Koha functionality has been adopted by thousands of libraries world-wide, each adding features and functions, deepening the capability of the system. With the integration of the powerful Zebra indexing engine, Koha became a viable, scalable solution for libraries of all kinds.
