The Library Catalogue has been fully automated by using ‘ALICE FOR WINDOWS’ library software. This computerized catalogue could be used to search for books using Author’s Name/Title and Subject Keywords. The database is available in LAN (Local Area Network) in the Science Library and it is in WAN (Wide Area Network) in the University of Colombo.
