The Library of Hamidia Girls’ Degree College is automated using Software for University Libraries (SOUL). The software is an integrated library management software designed and developed by the INFLIBNET Centre. The college purchased SOUL version 2.0 in the year 2019 to enhance the efficiency of its library services to the users. The documents in the library are catalogued in SOUL using the catalogue module of the software.
The Circulation module is used by the library to create/edit/delete/search user records, renew membership and also establish relationship between the user and resources by creating transaction records (Issue/Return/Renew).
The software provides OPAC facility to the library users from which they can easily retrieve information and status about the documents owned by the library. The OPAC can be accessed by the users through nine systems connected through LAN in the library.
