An important factor in the scientific and educational process in higher education is the local library of the respective educational institution. One of the most important services that the local library offered mostly involves the use of the local library information system. By using this information system a lot of reference and research activities are performed. The system usually works online and has a web-based interface that makes it possible to work with it remotely over the Internet using a regular web browser.

Higher education institutions in every country are using library information systems from different software manufacturers and therefore these systems have different capabilities. Criteria for choosing one or another system are different but usually among the most important factors are the financial side - initial purchase costs and subsequent charges, as well as availability of qualified local support team.

The present study aims to reveal the trends in the use of these systems in the Bulgarian university libraries by summarizing and analyzing the results of the conducted empirical research in the period 2013-2019. The survey covers all 51 higher education institutions in Bulgaria accredited and currently in operation and the data are up to mid-2019. The main scope is the so-called "Online public access catalogues" which is an essential part of each library information system. By providing this study we try to reveal some tendencies and determine the market share of the different information systems in this market niche.
