"The theme of the book `Re-Envisaging Knowledge Resource Centers : Roles and
Responsibilities' is chosen because of its importance and relevance to the present global
scenario. Libraries are at a turning point. As technology rapidly transforms the way we
access information, and resources are increasingly available online and in digital
formats, the established role of the library as a physical space housing racks of books is
looking incresingly out of step with the needs of students and researchers. Allied with
technology, library users' needs and preferences are helping to drive the change in
libraries. Students, researchers and teachers now expect to be able to access information
around the clock, from almost anywhere in the world and via a growing number of devices,
from laptops to phones. Considering the importance of the theme, there was tremendous
response from many library professionals from all over the country as well as out of
country who have submitted papers on various sub-themes related to library services. After
ending and scrutiny by experts, the editors had to reject some papers which did not fit
into the these and/or `not up-to the-mark', which is inevitable. The contributors of
articles included in this book are mostly from scientific, research and academic
institutions. Many of the articles report the experience of these authors in handling the
digital resources and services."
