Abstract

Computer literacy is defined. Reasons are given why computer literacy is required by librariansinformation officers and some of the computerised library tasks are listed. Problems such as computer fearanxiety and computer resistance, the clash of computer software methodologies, and miscellaneous problems such as the acquisition of unknown, often unsuitable software programmes for libraries, userfriendliness of programmes, home made library programmes, training and the unwillingness of a few staff members to become computer literate are named and discussed. Some solutions to overcome these problems are discussed communication, training, the use of manuals, hardware and software support and user groups.
