Title
Publishing and sharing library resources with the ABCD Site
Author
Abstract
In spite of the library website being a very good medium and platform to communicate details of various print and electronic resources of the library to its users, still many libraries, especially in the South, fail to share their resources due to a lack of technical or computer skills. Yet many interactive tools to share library contents are available as Content Management System solutions, e.g. Joomla, Drupal, etc. These facilitate the use of Web 2.0 techniques such as blogs, RSS, instant messaging, social networking services, wikis, and social tagging applications. In this context we present the ABCD-Site module, one of the easiest tools for libraries to use in developing their interactive library website, as part of the ABCD integrated library automation suite. With a minimum of time and effort, libraries can easily become active members of the digital age in publishing and sharing their information to a wide audience.
