This new arrival is worth pondering attention. It should be acquired in multiple copies, in addition to e-book formats. The best approach taken in this book is--the authors restrict themselves to predict future, just for a small period of half a decade, considering the unpredictable volatile nature of the technologies. ICT undoubtedly assumes greater importance here for obvious reasons of its involvement that is impacting libraries to a great extent. Indeed, it is transforming the scenario through the digital revolution, social media involvement, and increasing affinity of patrons towards speedy access and assimilation of information and knowledge.
