Volunteer librarians gathered on 31 March for a training session on the Senayan Library Management System which features the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC), an online database with thumbnail document image support, Simple Search and Advanced Search modes, adopted by Pustaka Nalanda.
During the training session, the librarians learnt many features available in the system such as bibliography database management, circulation, membership, and many more that automate various library tasks.
As of 30 April, there are more than 3,000 publication titles available at Pustaka Nalanda, excluding CDs and multimedia items. The Tipiñaka and reading materials are available in many languages, too. You are welcome to visit our Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) at http://nalanda.org.my/pustaka and look up our catalogue of books and other references.
Pustaka Nalanda would like to thank Mr Benny Liow Woon Khin for his generous gift of reference books to our Library. We would also like to thank Mr. A K Lee & family, Sis. Lim Eng Bee, Mr. Y M Liew & family, Sis. Sugandha Ooi, and Sis. Samantha Sam for their sponsorships of Buddhist books which added to our library catalogue.
