Abstract: In the recent years, the libraries need to focus their attention towards developing electronic documents selectively and access to electronic information sources using network facilities. Selection of electronic sources for collection development activities is to be done based on certain criteria i.e. reputation of authors. publishers and products, context. format features, access methods, storage and licensing agreements. The author provides strategies for libraries to get into networks and resource sharing trends. The present era is more conducive to the resource sharing and use of financial resources effectively. The concept of ownership need to be replaced with sharing the resources for mutual benefit.
