Information communication Technology in academic libraries is used to save the operating cost, to make repetitive housekeeping operations more effective and efficient to save time and as well as to provide access to huge number of resources to the library patrons. ICT has helped the libraries to upgrade the efficiency of academic libraries. The revolutionary development in ICT has facilitated to provide access to library resources 24 x 7 as well as remote access. How the ICT has been or may be applied in academic libraries to provide and maximize the web enabled information services to the patrons as well as improve the internal working of the library is the purpose of this paper.
