|Title:||Technology Readiness For Library Automation|
|Abstract:||There is no doubt that there exist a relationship between technology and growth.Many researchers have emphasized that the acquisition of technological capability in educational institutions and nations in East Asia helps the min growing and sustaining their economies. Successful implementation of integrated automation software in universities/educational institutions could be an initiative in this direction. In educational institutions and universities, automation of libraries is very important for the sharing of knowledge. Usually, the automation and digitization of library take one or more years to implement and many institutions prefer outsourcing as it allows them to use the latest technology, expertise and service value at competitive costs. There exist many problems in implementing such software that includes lack of technological capability, complacency, lack of data and information flow, and mistrust. A number of studies have been conducted on the above mentioned parameters, however the key i.e. “readiness of software users” has not been studied a lot especially in Indian context, which is very crucial for the success or acceptance of technological advancement. Thus, the present study analyzes the technology readiness amongst the various stakeholders like faculty, students and library staff in educational institutions for the automation and digitization of library.|
