Abstract

Chattogram is the 2nd largest city of Bangladesh. It is commercial capital and the port city of the country. Recently the government has changed the naming spelling of the city as Chattogram from the former name Chittagong. However, the academically registered institutions of Chattogram use their former name as it appears. This study assessed the performance of the university libraries of Chattogram and tried to assess the operational procedure of open source integrated library system (ILS)Koha in Chattogram, by using sources of primary and secondary data. The study hit upon that the ILS Koha is successfully used for the everyday library activities for ensuring qualitative university education in selected university libraries of Chattogram. To find out the exact scenario of koha-ILS in the university libraries, a total of 20 library professionals were interviewed.
