Abstract

Library management is the word which means to manage all the functions of the library, so that the library can perform actively and can satisfy their users by providing their required materials or documents. For giving better service to the users, the libraries are trying to convert their documents and the way of giving services from manually too electronically so that the library can satisfy the users. And this converting process is known as to automating the library functions. The present study compares the differences between the different modules and their functions of SOUL and Koha. The study focuses on to evaluate a critical comparison between the acquisition, cataloguing, circulation, serial control, OPAC and administrative modules of SOUL and Koha. With the help of this study one can easily identify the library management software they really want for managing a automated library. The study reveals that though a library management system both the software has all the functional modules but Koha LMS is more user friendly rather than SOUL because of its flexibility.
