English abstract

Provides an insight into the practical aspects of selection and implementation of Open Source Software (OSS) for managing the activities and services of a library or an information centre. Identifies that a main pre-requisite for OSS use in libraries is for the librarian to be able to harness the potential capabilities of its staff by motivating them effectively. Finds that OSS is more future oriented and more easily amenable for customization and can be an effective low- cost alternative to their proprietary counterpart
