Today, organizations find themselves buried in structured and unstructured data, as the use of online data resources, mobile tools, and social networking tools spread, there is growing need to capture, manage and share content and knowledge in new ways. Organizations are looking for solutions to retrieve and manage their content. There are many interfaces to share information and knowledge content among employees, customers and business partners. The world has become small due to connectivity, knowledge has become strong currency to trade between individuals and groups, which requires cross-functional planning and expertise through information technology and ultimately it promotes creativity. There’s no single tool or software package that captures the imagination of the organization to look into as one stop solution for storing and managing the contents and knowledge and to bring in compatibility between storage devices and human resources.The emerging and cutting edge technologies have put more onus on libraries to cater to varied information needs and provide state of the art services. This change and challenge is easily witnessed in today’s library systems and demand of professionals who are more determined, competent and trained to face the array of responsibilities. Transition from information possession to access is inevitable and envisage in present electronic era where consortia efforts are needed to facilitate all resource hubs. It must be recognized that connectivity keeps us alive, informed and provide impetus for improvement and acceptance.
