The groundwork for the computerization of the library was started with the manual entry of the details of the books. These details were fed in the data entry terminals and stored. The automation work gained momentum with accuracy by the provision of assistance from commercial software of CAPMPUS i LIB. The library has its own sub LAN consisting of 7 terminals, one server to support library software, OPAC services and other in-house computerization activities are done within the library. Web Based OPAC has been created for all the resources available in the library. Data can be accessed from various search points. Circulation activities were computerized providing statistics on the issue and return of books. Introduction of barcode technology helped to achieve maximum efficiency in providing accuracy, speed and reliability in issue and return procedure.
book bank scheme
SNSCP Central Library has Book Bank facility as one of the section of the library for all our students. Students’ welfare is the main objective to administer this facility. The main aim of this immense service is to help the needy students to fulfill their expectations. This scheme also avoids the need for the students to buy books from market at higher rates and with difficulties. Books from the Book Bank are issued for the whole semester and during every semester in addition to regular books students can borrow books from book bank for retention for the whole semester. This scheme aids in fulfilling student’s requirement for the prescribed books on semester basis.
