Author(s): Manjeet Panwar
Abstract: “A Library is the Place of Worship” Libraries must provide the best services to its users or clientele. To meet user expectations, libraries in the past have updated their collection. In today’s challenge, we must not only update our collection but we must also provide better access to information through the new information highway. This is may be done by way of digitization. Digitization in libraries is today’s response towards a faster delivery of information to its users via internet or intranet. For developing countries like the Philippines where internet facilities are not available even in government offices within Metro Manila or other cities, CD technology in another option to access digitized information. Information needed may be accessed via the internet in full text or in the form it was digitized (such as bibliographic), via the internet 24/7 or twenty four hours a day, seven days a week at any place in the world where there are internet facilities.
