Libraries have been the repositories of knowledge for hundreds of years. Libraries of today need to make major changes in their operations and means to make information and knowledge available to uses in practically no-time. The world is moving rapidly towards the model of digital libraries. Big nations like India need to be at the forefront of this revolution. The digital libraries of tomorrow provide wide opportunities for access to knowledge, efficient retrieval, and avenues for taking libraries far beyond the buildings and structures where these are housed. Digitization of libraries makes it possible to read material that may physically be housed thousands of kilometers away.

Digital libraries (DL) are the means by which people of this millennium are accessing materials in digital format from anywhere anytime. Different visions of DLs include; the electronic access to materials in digital form, access to data stores and access to scholarly (self-published) materials. Library networks and online resource sharing efforts. The major fillip to precipitation of the DL idea is attributed to the overwhelming effect of WWW in the functioning of every field.

This book covers issues related to evaluation of digital library management and different visions of DLs includes--the electronic access to materials in digital form, access to data stores and access to scholarly materials Implementation and utilization of Digital Libraries and their future implications towards shaping information paradigm. It is to enable the developing and developed countries to bridge the digital divide through knowledge sharing.
