Abstract
Description
Technology-led developments have created new opportunities and challenges for libraries in creation, promotion, dissemination and storage of information. The library is one of the many institutions undergoing change in the face of technological advances. This, in turn, has led to the generation of new services, hitherto non-existent, as well as modification of existing library services and their deliverables, as well as the move towards new communication paradigms and the shift from face to face human contact to human machine interaction, from paper to electronic delivery, from text centered mode to multimedia and from physical presence to virtual presence.
