Abstract: The present age is Information Age, and the pedagogic implications of this age are that people should learn new skills to use information stored on computers. Libraries and Information Centers have responded by acquiring information technology and encourage computer literacy. The information that is available through libraries, community resources, special interest organizations, media and Internet comes to individuals in unfiltered formats, rising question about its authenticity, validity and reliability. In addition, information available through multiple media poses new challenges for individuals in understanding the landscape of information and to acquire knowledge of how to gather, evaluate and use information in today’s world. Information literacy therefore, is increasingly important in the contemporary environment of rapid technological change and proliferating information resources. It enables learners to master content and extend their investigations, become more self-directed and assume greater control over their own learning. With the advances in Information and Communication technologies (Dhiman, 2001, 2002 & 2003), the traditional concepts of organization, user orientation, bibliographic description and dissemination of information are to be fine-tuned to the new environment by the Library and Information Professionals. So the LIS professionals working in the environment have to face challenges for providing the right information to the right user at the right time.
