A Computerized Library Management System for Damahana MV

R/Damahana MV has made rapid progress in many fields winning several provincial and national level awards. The reasons behind these successes could be attributed to the fact that formal curricula based education and extracurricular activities are given due attention at all times

The achievements at Grade Five scholarship level and 2009 Advanced Level results could be sited as reflective indicators of these achievements.
Damahana MV was adjudged the school providing the best learning environment-2009 in the Ratnapura district. The School also received first place at Provincial level and second place at National level for the Schools Productivity Award.
There has also been a remarkable improvement with the addition of new buildings including a well equipped library. However, for effective use of the library it was necessary that it be equipped with a computerized library management system.
The school management committee approached many organizations and private institutions but due to the heavy cost it can incur, they were hesitant to meet our request.
At this juncture, with the intervention of a local student and Moratuwa University IT graduate, Charith Mahawatte, the Moratuwa University offered to assist with the project.
As a consequence, graduates of the University, Charith Mahawatte, Damith Sulochana, Kaushalya Hemaratne, together with Rupavahini Program producer Rohana Aluthge helped install the computerized library management system for the school.
This allows us the opportunity to efficiently manage the newly established school library at Damahana MV.
