A library web portal or website is the mirror of an educational institute as well as library. From the last decade, the library professionals have progressed extremely well and attained the general ability in collecting, organising and disseminating information to their users by using internet and other related technologies. The creation and maintenance of a library portal requires programming expertise as well as money and interest.
