Library Services in Electronic Environment

Tariq Ashraf (Author)
Synopsis Information technology presents both new opportunities and challenges before the library profession as it creates new products and delivery of services. It has also changed the basic assumptions about organizational structures, working relationships and the quality of library services. Libraries are further challenged to explore new opportunities and implement changes to establish new roles and responsibilities and determine knowledge, skill and abilities required. Some of the characteristics of the current and emerging information environment in which libraries have now to function include greater complexity in locating, analyzing and linking information, sustained financial investment for technology, lack of standardization of both hardware and software. The new information environment requires that librarian’s role should be characterized by increased visibility and vitality. Librarians need to be well integrated into the activities of their institutions and the community they serve. The book looks into all these changes, challenges, issues, strategies and situations of contemporary interest both from users’ and providers perspectives. It is hoped that the book will sustain readers’ interest despite some overlapping and repetitions which are bound to creep in such publications.
