Abstract—The research study aimed to create a system that could help future researchers of PRMSU-CCIT in their respective fields. The study used the quantitative method and ISO/SEC 25010:2015 Software Quality Metrics to evaluate the system. The study found that CCIT Faculty and CCIT Students can use the system and even the other schools who seek studies related to the computer field. Also, the respondents assessed the E-Library for CCIT Theses and Capstone Projects in terms of functional suitability, performance efficiency, compatibility, usability, reliability, security, maintainability, and portability as excellent. The respondents assessed the E-Library for CCIT Theses, and Capstone Projects in the Level of Acceptability was Highly Acceptable, indicating that the developed system could respond to the users' needs to provide research information. The researchers recommended that functional suitability and usability evaluation be conducted to enhance the system further. The E-Library for CCIT Theses and Capstone Projects should be implemented in the college to have an electronic application for theses and capstone projects.

2. Dry Matter Yields and Chemical Compositions of Leucaena Varieties as Animal Feed in Irrigated Lowland of Dassench District of South Omo, South-Western Ethiopia.

Abstract—The shortfalls in quantity and quality of feed are one of the major nutritional impediments that have been affecting livestock production in South Omo. This nutritional stress gives rise to poor reproductive and productive performances of livestock. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the dry matter yield and chemical compositions of five Leucaena varieties which grown in irrigated lowland of Dassench district. The Sermemiret Kebele (lowest administrative sub-unit) from Dassench district was selected for a participatory on-farm experimental trial with active involvements of district pastoral office experts and Kebele Development Agents. The tested varieties namely DZ-0032, DZ-321, DZ -dismounts, DZ-235 and DZ-032 were evaluated in a randomized complete block design with three replications per variety. The dry matter yield (DMY), plant height (PH), branches per plant (BPP) and chemical compositions were analyzed by using the Generalized Linear Model (GLM) procedures of Statistical Analysis System (SAS) and Least Significance Difference (LSD) was used for mean comparison. The DZ-321 variety gave higher (P<0.05) DMY (31.37 t ha-1) whereas, the DZ- dismounts variety gave lower DMY (11.88 t ha-1). The DZ-032 variety had higher (P<0.05) crude protein (233.50 g kg-1, DM), whereas, DZ-dismounts and DZ-321 varieties had lower (P<0.001) crude protein (144.40 and 148.50 g kg-1, DM, respectively). Based on results from this study, we could be concluded that the agro-pastoralists and pastoralists could enhance the feed availability for increased livestock production by planting superior candidate DZ-321 Leucaena variety for higher DMY and DZ-032 variety for higher crude protein (CP) content.
