Abstract

Digital libraries are here to stay, and the conversion of traditional to digital is inevitable. Appropriate care should be taken to develop systems and managerial skills as well. Globalisation of the digital concept will not be possible until we overcome the technological gap between developed and developing countries. Measures are needed to overcome the menace of computer viruses and also unauthorised use. Sufficient thought has not been given to attaining self-sustained growth. It is therefore essential to explore new avenues for funding, particularly since initial investment in digital libraries is high, as is maintenance.
