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.
