The Goa University library went online on Wednesday May 30th 2012 - Online Open Access Catalogue (OPAC). OPAC will help students and public to search and locate from over 1.4 lakhs books and over 400 international journals.
Goa University will upload PhD thesis submitted to it on the website soon too.
"The website http://library.unigoa.ac.in uses an open source software KOHA. Users can login, search for titles using keywords and also find related titles in the search. Books can also be previewed by the readers. If users want to generally browse through the books available in the library they can do it using the OPAC http:libcat.unigoa.ac.in on the website. The OPAC will soon be made available on mobile devices too," said university librarian Dr Gopakumar V, who has designed the website.
"Colleges affiliated to the Goa University are encouraged to create their own library websites. We plan to link these websites to ours so that a user can at a time search a book's availability in the libraries across Goa's institutions," Dr Gopakumar said.
Different language dictionaries, encyclopedias and formats for academic writing too are available on the website.
