The central objective of a library is to identify, collect, organize and make accessible the information to the users. Earlier a library was measured according to its holdings but with the development of computing and telecommunication and their adoption in libraries things have changed. Libraries and librarians are facing unprecedented challenges everyday due to proliferation of information technologies. Most of the present day libraries are moving from print to digital collections or at least to a hybrid print and digital collections. This movement has a significant impact of information technology as delivery and content of information is governed by it. User expectations have also grown as they not just require the required information but it is to be delivered with quality, accuracy and with immediate response to their needs. To achieve these libraries need to build their manpower with effective leadership. Manpower is the most valuable resource of any organization, and they work with a common goal or purpose. The organization provides facilities and technology which are tools used by the people to carry out the common purpose.
