Moreover, the reports can also be self-customized.”

    “CYBRARIANTM  also allows the member libraries to form or create their own network of libraries from similar related subjects / background / industries for resource sharing by collecting, storing & disseminating information and would offer networked services like information about resources scattered in the  libraries throughout the world,  referencing materials to meet the requirements of students, researchers, scholars & the general public, Inter Library Loan etc. without incurring any extra cost, “ said Sohaon K., Chief Operating Officer of the company.   “CYBRARIANTM   is the result of 10+ man years of research & development and helps libraries to reduce their OPEX by 80-90%.
