Since the application of information technology in libraries, one of the greatest challenges before the library managers is the selection of a good library automation software package which can cater to the needs of a particular library. In India, library automation process started in the last decade of the previous century. Many Indian as well as foreign software companies had entered into the market. Nevertheless, only a couple of library automation software packages gained success in making their presence felt into Indian market. The present article discusses the salient features of cataloguing module of three such packages, namely, Alice for Windows, Libsys and Virtua and their acceptability in a developing nation.
