‘Digital Technologies’ have transformed the future of academic libraries creating new challenges as well opportunities. Internet and web technologies have brought dramatic changes in the nature and functioning of the libraries. Increasing trends of using digital information resources are growing extremely as the users have more potential to be easily accessible simultaneously by many users. The users’ priorities in information seeking patterns are changed with the changing information landscape and technology. It is observed that demand for ‘information in digital form’ has increased tremendously and therefore all the academic libraries are required to transform themselves for catering the changing needs of their patrons. Taking into consideration the changing nature of the teaching-learning process, the academic libraries are required to play multiple roles as ‘Learning Resource Centers’. The academic libraries are always required to make them capable by acquiring various soft skills for managing constant technological changes and responding to the constantly changing end-user expectations.
