Abstract: Increasing use of technology as a means of accessing information and the recent shift towards cooperative learning and group study have brought changes in the way patrons use libraries and library resources. This article is based on the part of a survey that investigated the ICT knowledge and skills of librarians at the Chandigarh City. A study population of 21 librarians of Chandigarh city were surveyed by a questionnaire to establish in what ways librarians were using ICTs, what were the level of ICT knowledge and skills amongst the librarians, what problems the librarians faced in the use of ICTs and what their ICT training needs were. Interpretation of the results revealed a low level of ICT knowledge and skill amongst librarians and a general lack of formal training for ICTs amongst the academic librarians.
