KOHA – The Library ManagementK Software at SDMH Library 

The introduction of open source software Koha Library Software Management is an added feather to the library’s cap. KOHA improves a library’s relevance to the academic community because it joins its members with the library digitally. Members can view the whole library’s catalogued material from their desktops from anywhere within the CAMPUS. They can maintain their carts according to their choice, save favourites and keep a view on their reading history. The library staff enjoy working in an automated environment and the patrons enjoy services rendered using an OPAC instead of a card catalogue system. KOHA Library automation addresses the problem of manual processing of materials.
