OSS is quickly becoming a solution, owing to the freedom to copy, modify and distribute it and freedom from contracts as well as for greater opportunities for interoperability with other application. The paper mainly discusses about different OSS. It is a relatively new idea for library automation. People often advocate OSS because it is free. Some of the selected OSS is highlighted.
