Abstract University libraries have vast store of information in various forms. These sources of information can be accessed through Internet from any corner of the world. But Indian University libraries are lagging behind in this direction. But they can not afford to remain isolated form the world of information. There is a need to cat up with modern trends, which is possible only through digitization of libraries. The present paper tries to analyse the present scenario of Indian University libraries and made an attempt to propose digital libraries in Indian Universities. The proposed development of Digital University libraries have been suggested in three phases .Phase I: Acquiring Materials in Digital form; Phase II.: Digitization of Thesis, Dissertations, Manuscripts and Rare Books. Phase III: digitization of books and Journals . Lastly author has suggested that INFLIBNET which has taken up automation and networking of university libraries in India should extend its programmes to digitization of university libraries.
