INTRODUCTION The Open Source Initiative (http://www.opensource.org/) claims that open source software is “an idea whose time has finally come”. It is seen to represent the philosophical understanding of how a previously created “source” or code can be used or adapted to develop a piece of“ software”. LMS has significant roles in library automation. Basic points of considerations regarding LMS are: availability available features and functional modules standards and compatibility in data format and data exchange cost of procurement Options: commercial or free software? Availability in India: Most of are commercial software The open source ILMS originated in India: NewGenLib Open Source We attempted to highlight: features advantages and disadvantages Comparison with others Back2Plan

The Open Source Initiative (http://www.opensource.org/) claims that open source software is “an idea whose time has finally come”.

It is seen to represent the philosophical understanding of how a previously created “source” or code can be used or adapted to develop a piece of“ software”.

LMS has significant roles in library automation.

Basic points of considerations regarding LMS are:

availability

available features and functional modules

standards and compatibility in data format and data exchange

cost of procurement

Options: commercial or free software?

Availability in India: Most of are commercial software

The open source ILMS originated in India: NewGenLib Open Source

We attempted to highlight:

METHOD OF SCORING … One point each has given for the features available for zero each for the features not available in any software It must be noted that all features are not equal in significance

One point each has given for the features available for

zero each for the features not available in any software

It must be noted that all features are not equal in significance

FINDINGS BASED ON PROJECTED SCORE NewGenLib is more advanced It has five more features in general than Koha and much more than the commercial software under study In functional modules it remain advance than Koha but more or less equally featured with commercial software NewGenLib has also more features in number in all other aspects like: OPAC Circulation Cataloguing and Information Services Go2Chart Back2Plan

PROJECTED SCORE OF COMPARATIVE FEATURES Back2Plan

CONCLUSION Back2Plan In this very brief study it is clear that this software would be applicable in Indian libraries as far as its different features are concerned. It supports all the functional modules as well as the web interface needed for a library. In a developing country like India, the first Indian origin open source software is incredibly useful. In the new paradigm of information society, software like NewGenLib open source software is a basic requirement as a primary resource of library.It should take a great role for the purpose of Information Access Initiatives and Rural India.
