Abstract:University libraries in Malaysia, as elsewhere, are always in a constant state of change. The application of computers, the adoption of CD-ROM and other on-line databases, the emergence of multimedia technology and the expansion of the information highway following rapid developments in IT have made the working and information environment in these organisations very different from that before computerisation in the 1970s. These changes, under the impact of IT, have opened up new opportunities for libraries to improve their services in the decades ahead.
