  8. 8. “Functions of Library-Acquisition ” Acquisition is the process of capturing requests of books and serials from users of the Library and acquiring the required documents as per the budget of the Library. The acquisition process is initiated by a library user suggesting a new or already existing document. The document once suggested is checked and validated from reference sources for any changes and additions in different fields by the acquisition department of the library. The Library then sends a list of validated documents for approval to the approving authority for placing the final order. The approved documents are then sent to relevant vendors by sending them a provisional order. The provisional order once accepted by the vendor is finalized for order and library waits for the receipt of the order till the order is valid as per the policies of the Library. The orders which are not fulfilled by the end of order validity period are assigned to a new vendor on a priority basis. The documents are then accessioned and the invoice of order is sent to the accounts department for payments. . © 2009 VILS, All Rights Reserved

  13. 13. “Library automation a challenge-Complex processes in Library ” If we examine closely, the library management system is a complex process where many processes are linked with each other in linear and hierarchical way. It becomes difficult but not impossible to automate all processes of Library. A simple linear view suggests acquisition – processing – Service methodology. But in each sector of this linear view is hidden many sub-sectors which are linked hierarchically. The whole process of Library management thus becomes very complex process, which needs attention to automate the whole functionality to derive best results. © 2009 VILS, All Rights Reserved
  14. 14. “Library automation a challenge-Time Sensitivity of different processes ” Different processses as stated above involve time consumption. In a manual system the time taken to complete a process is much more than in an automated process. VILS has developed a scientific methodology to complete a process in a lesser time in usual way of manual system using web 2.0 technology. © 2009 VILS, All Rights Reserved
