Trainers of this training, Dr. Muhammad Ramzan (Director LUMS Library), Mr. Ata ur Rehman (Free and Open Source Activist, LISolutions), Muhammad Shafiq Rana (Coordinator LISolutions) and Mr. Arslan Farooq (LISolutions) delivered lectures and provided hands-on training on the above mentioned Free and Open Source Software.

On demand of participants a demo for conversion of data from MS Excel / Access to MARC using MARCEdit was also presented.  Participants found this very useful.

We are thankful to PLWO, PULISAA and Hailey College of Commerce for their support to make this training a successful event as partner.

The participants of this training decided to create a dynamic community of practice for TLS.  For this purpose a Mailing List / LISTSERV has been created for the users of TLS.

Note: If you are user of TLS or intend to use TLS, you can join this mailing list at

So many professionals contacted us to get TLS.  For this purpose we have uploaded TLS DVD on SourceForge website.  Please find whole TLS DVD at
