1.1. Introduction

Today, information is everything and it forms the part of any progressive thinking. Information is being recorded, published and disseminated through several media, though the print media still dominates. Nowadays, scholar's work requires the application on broader scale of new methods and means of searching, processing, storage and transfer of information. Controlling information has a direct relation with the information explosion, which is one of the ever-growing phenomena in the world.

So, the Government of India's Ministry of Education has recently started implementing a project of Computer education in the country. It has been launched as a pilot project for introducing Computer Literacy and internet knowledge in Schools (class) in collaboration with the Department of Electronics. At the first instance, 250 schools all over the country were brought under the purview of this project and training courses were organized for the teachers in the selected Resource Centres. Gradually all the schools would be covered in a phased manner. This has raised a wave of discussion in the country why computer in the field of education also? There has very often been hue and cry when computer has entered into the arena of industry, business, banking, examination and so on. It is usually complained that computer will replace the man and unemployment will be rampant as a result of this.

The ever-expanding field of education among the human race has necessitated a continuous modification and innovation of its technology. The present growth in innovation techniques of teaching and learning had been resulted in such an outburst of explosion of science and technology. Educational researchers have indicated the need for a systematic approach for the effective teaching and learning education literature has emphasized teaching as an art, learning as a scheme, which depends on instructional objectives, appropriate instructional design and proper media selection. The commitment of the teacher and the school to the learner lies on these three key learning resources.

1.2. Resource Sharing

Not all libraries can afford all the resources like journals, book report, etc., due to spiraling costs of information. The way out to disseminate the required information to the needy is to consider in a hest way the concepts like distributed databases, library co-operation, interlibrary loan, resource sharing. Since, computers and telecommunication have entered into libraries, it is possible to achieve maximum result in information dissemination through computer networks.
