The modern age of information explosion poses stiff challenges in providing right information to right user in right time. In such a situation Information Technology (IT) comes to rescue of libraries and information centers. Today’s changing scenario in publishing and IT fields has forced the library and informational professionals to accept the changing demands placed on the profession today. In view of this changing scenario an attempt is made by Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (SVNIT) Library, Surat to introduce the application of recent advanced technology in their library. The computerization of SVNIT library including all modules i.e acquisition, cataloguing, serial control, circulation and OPAC was introduced in 1998 using LIBSYS Software and the software is upgraded from time to time depending on the situation. An attempt was made to create digital library by digitized question papers and other reports, procuring CD-ROM databases along with e-resources subscribed under INDEST.
