The library acquired the IRIS (Information Retrieval Imaging System) library software in April 1997 to computerize the library catalogues. In January 2004, the library system has been upgraded to "PUSTAKA which provides online literature search and supports the installation of the local OPAC ( Online Public Access Catalogue ) for the library. With this installation, members are able to check on the availability of any book in the library either by Author, Title or Subject search just at a click of a button from the local OPAC terminals in the library. It enables members to browse through the library catalogues without the hassle of going through the card catalogue system. In May 2004, the computerised library catalogues under ‘PUSTAKA" was made accessible on the Internet as web-enabled OPAC which allows members to browse through the catalogues from the Internet, anywhere and anytime.
