Cloud Libraries: A Novel Application of Cloud Computing

Faiz Abidi, Hasan Jamal Abidi

Abstract


Libraries all over the world suffer from common problems like flexibility associated with the digital data, lower levels of efficiency, and huge cost involved in managing the entire IT infrastructure themselves. Few options are available when it comes to collaborating with other libraries as well which is the prime reason for subordinate levels of efficiency. Cloud computing would help us in bridging the gap between digital libraries and IT. Sharing of data among the libraries will in principle reduce the overall cost and increase the efficiency. Capital expenditure done on infrastructure will chiefly be converted into operational expenditure.  It will also enhance the users’ experience and will help in making the libraries a lot more scalable.
