Sept. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- Those days have become a passé when managing a library took hours on end. Today, library software has stepped into the shoes of manual organization. Right from ordering, renewal, and return of books to creating, managing, and updating catalogs to keeping the physical databases all safe from unauthorized use, every aspect of library management is now only a button away. The electronic library software has, in fact, changed the entire scenario: the use of sophisticated technologies has made possible the creation of high quality products and delivery of value-added services, both for users and library staff.
Why software for library is a good choice?

1.   Raises the Efficiency Quotient

It improves the functional efficiency of the library staff: their responsibilities like acquisition, circulation, cataloging, shelving, and re-shelving, patron interaction etc. can be carried out in much less time and with higher efficiency. Other tasks such as collecting fines, searching bibliographic records, resolving complaints, and registering new patrons get hastened by digital library software.

2.   Automates the Functions

Makes available to the users the wider and gives easier access to database. With cutting-edge technologies at their disposal, they can assist themselves in operations like self issue, self renew, and returning items at book drops. This makes their life a whole lot easier.

3.   Communication was Never so Easy

The communication and information dissemination between library & its patrons and among different libraries is rendered easy and that too for every level of departmental hierarchy.

4.   Electronic Safekeeping

Electronic library software comes with avant-garde systems like RFID shelf management (Radio Frequency Identification) and EM security system (Electromagnetic): these are powerful tools that are used increasingly in library automation today. RFID is a wireless system used to retrieve data electronically, making the library functionality for efficient and quick. AN EM system prevents the theft or tampering of the items present within library premises. A combination of these two technologies, namely, Hybrid, boosts the security of library even further.

5.   Compliance to Standards

Library software works in compliance with varied industry standards. The systems that support formats like MARC, Z39.50, SICI-Barcode, NCIP-NISO, SRU-SRW, and Unicode, the software can be smoothly run on.

6.   Access to Open Public Database

The digital library software provides OPAC (Open Public Access Catalog), a database that is accessible to everyone who is online. OPAC makes it easy to retrieve details of a particular book and aids in finding quick and reliable search results.  

7.   Provides Federated Search

Federated search is another plus point that comes handy to a user. Such a search technology helps in the retrieval of the results from multiple search engines. All the results from different resources are then accumulated and are displayed to the users. The users can even choose what resources to include in search and what not.
