ABSTRACT
The world is undergoing a transition from a paper economy to a digital economy. The need of the hour is a highly proactive role from the Third World countries either singly or jointly, that would take into account the changing scenarios in the information and communication technologies and their non-linear interactions and convergence. Developing countries are being encouraged to invest in their national information infrastructure so that they can participate in knowledge based development. Advances have brought many changes in libraries. An attempt has been made in this study to identify usage of Information Communication Tool among the library professionals in Tamil Nadu. Nearly 175 questionnaires were distributed among the library professionals in Tamil Nadu. Nearly 170 responses (97%) were received. It is found that all the respondents are using in one-way or the other various types of ICT Media tools.
