ABSTRACT
BRAC University‟s Ayesha Abed Library is not equipped with adequate software, which can access books from different branched, and sub-systems within BRAC University itself. This proves to be a problem for students and people within BRAC who could benefit within BRAC University. The present software only provides a database for existing books available or not within this single library. What is therefore required is such software that can provide access and information of all the other books, articles and journals present within BRAC .Now such software does exist named KOHA, which provides the above-mentioned benefits. However KOHA needs to be modified, customized and made compatible for BRAC University, in order for the student and employees of BRAC to use and benefit from it. This thesis paper aims to analyze KOHA and thereby provide a customized version for BRAC University. 5 |
