Library & Information Resource Center

The Central Library has switched now, over to an open-source Integrated Library System (ILS) , thus heading towards the growing community of libraries collaborating to achieve technology goals . The impressive feature set of OPAC is up to the mark of meeting the needs of its user base. New OPAC is a true enterprise-class ILS with comprehensive functionality including basic or advanced options. This OPAC includes modules for circulation, cataloging, acquisitions, serials, reserves , patron management , branch relationships , and more . OPAC uses a dual database design that utilizes the strengths of the two major industry-standard database types (text-based and RDBMS). This design feature ensures that OPAC is scalable enough to meet the transaction load of library, no matter what the size. OPAC management and self-checkout interfaces are all based on standards-compliant World Wide Web technologies--XHTML, CSS and Javascript.webshots:-
