English abstract

Library service is the combination of the services- process and its delivery. In a library, the service offered from acquisition section, technical section, reference section etc. are the processes carried out there and thereafter delivered to the users. The library services have changed fast in last ten years. Now a days e resources, Internet and Web 2.0 tools represent large portion of library services. Innovation and technology transfer differentiates the role of the librarian and extends it beyond the limits of the information intermediary. The librarian in order to involve, anticipate and especially produce innovation has to learn how to learn, as libraries have to learn how to change.
