Academic Library Automation

P.K. Paliwal (Editor) Shyama Balakrishnan (Editor)
Synopsis An automated system can allow a smaller staff to process materials faster at a lower cost, a real boon to libraries in this age of cost cutting and staff reductions. Whether an academic library is planning to purchase its first automated system or is planning to have a more advanced system, a study should be done to determine what operations will be automated and what the system should be able to do?

The present book is designed to equip the academics and library professionals with basic knowledge about library automation. The entire information is scientifically organised in seven chapters.
