  • 14. 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
  • 15. FINDINGS BASED ON PROJECTED SCORE
    • NewGenLib is much 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
  • 16. PROJECTED SCORE OF COMPARATIVE FEATURES Back2Plan
  • 17. 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
