Thailand libraries have recently begun to venture into the field of
digital content service. Starting at the OPAC system which allows the
public to search the library catalogue via the Internet/Intranet. The IT
system soon expanded to cater for every aspect of library management
and service. The ILS (Integrated Library System) has been implemented
by most medium to large size libraries, which provide electronic
management of acquisition, catalogue, circulation, and the OPAC service.
However, the cost of proprietary ILS is exorbitantly high. Many
high-profile library such as Thammasat University Library is investigating
an open-source option, of which Koha is currently being viewed as most fit
for large-scale libraries.
