English abstract

This paper gives an overview of a few Cataloguing Softwares, which are capable of cataloguing digital resources. Discusses usefulness of the software for cataloging digital resources, availability of the software, their features in terms of platforms, access cost, supported modules and their limitations.  The study has been made based on the testing of the software and their usage.  MARCit is one such software for cataloguing Internet resources with lots of features like user-friendly interfaces, use of MARC format for cataloguing, interoperable with other local library softwares.  It supports USMARC, can be integrated with any browser, and can also work with ftp sites.  It does automatic filling of certain fields in the catalogue based on the browser properties.  We have selected and reviewed some other software also.  These are particularly useful to catalogue different types of resources.  They enhance the search, browse and retrieval capability of the catalogued resources as well as provide single click access to all the information and also can be used for printing spine labels, catalogue cards, etc.  Also they can be used as a stand-alone or they can be combined with the existing library packages.
