SLiMS Bangladesh works for the development of the libraries in the country. Hope the list will be helpful for small libraries to start library automation and figure out an appropriate budget. It’s just a minimum list. The more you budget, the better configuration is suggested. However, for better selection of hardware, library professionals are requested to contact with an expert professional.
^If the library has the ability, should buy a dedicated server.
*The List will be updated time to time if required. Last updated on 19 July 2019.
