*Abstract of Thesis*

Libraries are the heart of academic institutions. Academic Libraries have
and are putting every effort in using computers and IT related advantages to
improve library services. Thus their existing heterogeneity in the adoption
of technology particularly, library software for automating the activities
of libraries was, there for it felt essential   to understand, the status of
library automation, the software used. Hence the topic of research “A Study
of Effective Use of Integrated Library Software in Engineering College
Libraries in Karnataka” undertaken by the researcher. Thesis presented in
the six chapters, the researcher has given ten recommendations which would
be helpful for the engineering libraries to provide better automated
services to the user community.  The researcher has made comprehensive
study, it is deemed true that computer has revolutionized our society and
helped us scale greater heights in the evolution cycle.  Now, the present
study is an attempt for finding out the ways to make use of the available
library resources in the best possible manner. No software package can meets
all the requirements of a given library system. Inevitably, some compromises
will be needed in work flows, input, output and report formats.
Customization takes lot of time, by doing that, other problems could arise.
Therefore, while choosing the library software it is important to prioritize
the requirements and make sure that the chosen software meets most, if not
all the high priority requirements.
