Abstract: Provides an insight into the practical implementation 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.<b style=""> </b>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.
