Abstract Information technology has been one of the major factors causing changes in the way people communicate, locate, retrieve, and use information. The impact of automation on the library is quite obvious and has created new types of work, prompted redefinition of certain functions, influenced interpersonal relationships, and transformed traditional organizational structures into new institutional entities. Libraries today are faced with planning for automation within a rapidly changing and uncertain technological environment. Resource sharing under the circumstances plays a pivotal role. The paper addresses the various issues viz. establishment INFLIBNET and its role in automation of university libraries in India. The new initiative taken by the UGC to establish UGC-Infonet and E-subscription for the Universities gives required boost for the automation activity in the country.
