Abstract: Electronic publications and the networking technologies enable the academic libraries to overcome various information problems and to access and provide relevant information to the users. The electronic media like CD-ROM, Online databases, electronic journals and newsletters, multimedia packages, Email and fax media, teletext and videotext etc. play significant roles in collection development activities in the academic libraries. The author describes how these electronic media can be accessed through the INTERNET and establish resource sharing facilities among the libraries and information centres of various countries in the world. The emphasis in the libraries have been shifted from collections of books and journals to the networked information services provided through modern technologies like CD-ROM networks and INTERNET. For collection development activities, the libraries are required to adopt these technologies.
