Application of Cloud Compouting Technology in Libraries

Authors(1) :-Rajneesh Kumar

Technology is growing very fast in these days Cloud computing is one of these fast growing techniques of Information Communication Technology because of its potential benefits such as reduced cost, accessible anywhere anytime as well as its elasticity and flexibility.For many organizations, cloud computing can simplify processes and we can save time and money by using cloud computing.The paper presents an overview of cloud computing and its possible applications that can be clubbed with library services on the web based environment. This study may be helpful in identifying and generating cloud based services for libraries.
