Abstract

The application of information and communication technologies (ICT) in libraries is considered the core effect of technology in modern times. Keeping the above concept in mind, a study has been carried out in two Central Public Libraries in the northern region of India, which is also a leading zone in the area of education and learning. This survey was conducted to investigate the application of ICT in the State Central Library, Haryana, and the T.S Central State Library, Chandigarh. The study provides recommendations to enhance library automation and effective and efficient application of ICT. The questionnaire sent to the librarians includes various aspects of the libraries under study, with particular reference to ICT applications. The data have been presented in nine tables with their interpretation. The findings are interpreted and a conclusion has been drawn in the light of objectives of the study.
