Abstract

In the transforming roles of library in the milieu of the emerging information technology and its renewal, several prospects have arisen. For about four centuries and more dominantly in the twentieth century up to this decade, books have dominated the role. They engulfed the science and technology, humanities and social sciences for the last two centuries. They provided the educational settings and made the library a center for lifelong self-education, renewal, and recreation. But as the faster mechanism of new infotech products emerged for information transfer, books got pushed back. Producing a book costs time, energy, and enormous managerial processes.
