English abstract

Modern technology has brought electronic books (e-books) to the readers which are now very useful due to space constraint as well as budgetary constraint. So, now a days, academic libraries gradually prefer e-books to print books for academic and research purposes. St. Xavier’s College Central Library is also following the same path by acquiring e-books from several vendors. The e-book vendors provide MARC records either through their official website or as per our requirement, which can be easily downloadable for integration into its Koha LMS. This paper will highlight the step by step integration process of bulk MARC records of e-books into Koha LMS. It also discusses the benefits arising out of this integration process, such as single window search facility i.e. printed books as well as e-books in the same user interface and it also discusses the types of probems faced during the integration process and their way-out to overcome.
