I was a member of N.S.S wing in my college. My task during the first year of N.S.S was to help the librarian and his subordinate staff to look after as well as manage a huge collection of books, journals, reference materials, magazines, etc…..
It was during my voluntary services in the library that I realized the level of difficulty involved in a librarian’s job. He/she is responsible to keep records such as total number of books and other collections, their availability, circulation reports, new entries as well as other transactions…..
Well… modern technology provides a solution for this problem in form of ERP; the IT team in Uniworld edusoft have come up with an ERP system known as Eduberry which is specially developed for educational institutes. It integrates and manages different departments in a school or in a college.
A question will come up in your mind as to how an educational ERP like Eduberry can be helpful to the librarian? Let me make elaborate its fascinating feature to answer your question…..
Eduberry is an innovative solution for the librarian…. It is automated software that creates an online database of various collections in the library. This helps the librarian to keep a track of total number of books, number books that are issued, any new inclusion in the library, specific requirements, damaged or lost books, etc….
Moreover, Eduberry also provide a clear picture to the students and the faculties regarding the books in library, their availability and any new entry of books or journals in the library. They will not have to move around in large hall with aisle filled with books, as they can see online which books are available.
All the information related to the books in school or college library will be visible to every member of the school or college fraternity, having a login id, but with its characteristic like customization only an authorized person will have an access to make any changes…..
Further, it divides the collection into different categories, thus it become very easy for the librarian to manage the books. Moreover, the students as well as the faculties will not find it difficult to search a book, due to proper categorization done by Eduberry.
Eduberry also updates the record in the library from time to time, as it generates data of damaged, lost or old materials. Therefore, it will be very helpful to the librarian to maintain a detailed record of wide range of collections in the library.
Technology has indeed brought a revolution in the field of education; Eduberry is a latest addition to list of technological wonders. With its unique features it will not only be helpful to the librarian, but also to the students and the teachers.
