Emerging Technologies for Library Management and Services
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has a profound impact on all spheres of activity in libraries, including how libraries build their collection, technical activities, outreach activities, budgetary strategies, manpower development, infrastructural requirement, and library services. Every day, new technological advances affect the way information is handled in library information centers. In the process of managing and communicating information, these advances are playing a vital role. ICT advances have even made it possible to provide library services and access to information outside the library. A library without walls or a virtual library is now becoming a reality. This book examines the various emerging trends and technologies in libraries and information services.
