INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP: "LIBRARY AUTOMATION MADE EASY WITH ACTIVESHELF AND KOHA ILS"

OVERVIEW

“As libraries seek to streamline their operations and adapt to the demands of the digital age, it has become evident that a significant number of librarians, including library students, do not have comprehensive knowledge or practical experience using Library Management Systems (LMS). It is against this backdrop that this International Workshop tagged: “Library Automation Made Easy (LAME) with ActiveShelf and Koha ILS” aims to bridge the gap by equipping participants with a foundational understanding of library automation and its potential to simplify and optimize library operations.

Through presentations, hands-on sessions, and panel discussions, participants will explore the role of Integrated Library Management Systems (ILS) such as ActiveShelf and Koha in modern library management.”
