Libraries and their resources have partially moved to an E- World. As a result, library patrons can access our resources from outside the physical library through their computers. These technologies can be widely adopted but will have to endure through many alterations by means in which they are offered by the libraries.Adoption of cloud computing is not an easy task for libraries.
