  1. 1. Automation of Library Services : Demonstration of Liberty Library Management System by
  2. 2. A Training Workshop on Issues in the Acquisition and Management of e-Library in TETFund- Supported Institutions September 2014
  3. 3. As Information Technology has converged with Communication Technology (ICT), the medium of information delivery has been greatly affected. Bibliography in libraries is slowly but surely, transforming from physical to electronic. Librarians now have to depend on ICT to acquire, hold, index and disseminate electronic resources. This presentation looks at the tools required to manage both physical and electronic resources under this dispensation.
  4. 4. Many Librarians have expressed the view that Library management systems would, for the foreseeable future, need to span both print and electronic materials and that the central issue was to provide a coherent view of a hybrid collection of bibliographic types. In this sense, an emphasis on content solely in print format is too limiting.
  5. 5. Advances in technology have changed the way even books are published. The concept, organization, functioning and management of library have also changed. The very nature of resources now in the custody of libraries require innovative and new ways of storage, management and dissemination. The new types of resources that now present themselves in virtual formats have changed the way the library function as it now has to manage physical and electronic resources.
  6. 6. The requirement of a library system therefore, depends on the bibliographic types in its collection. However, one must remember that your patrons may have demands of their own and so must anticipate their needs and plan for them.
  7. 7.  Conventional printed resources :  Books,  Journals,  Maps, etc  Electronic resources :  eBooks  eJournals  Video clips, etc  Web resources  Websites (URL)  Online subscription databases etc Bibliographic types
