English abstract

Library operations today are entirely different from what we have experienced in the past and we can expect a tremendous change in the future. These changes may affect almost all the fields of library organization and library management. The librarian and the library users must be ready to accept and adopt the new technologies; otherwise they will be pushed aside. Electronic library or digital library is the product of the technological development which enriched the field of library and information science and the accessories we use in these libraries are CD-ROM, DVD, floppy disks, multimedia computers etc. and now the Internet. The information explosion can be faced only by the application of IT and networks in libraries.
