    Abstract

    Since the evolution of information and communication technologies in the past decade, most libraries and librarians have experienced the widespread embracement of Web 2.0 technologies and the pervasiveness of mobile devices in their discussion on data management today. It has always been a challenge for librarians to keep up-to-date with the technologies. But, it has never been an impossible mission for most librarians who have the passion for building and devoloping online information services for the community and these are also the current challenges faced library vendors (or partners). On the other side, there are online information providers such as Google which keeps on changing their business model and possessing strong financial support to improve their online services. Amazon is another example and a possible alternative to the library industry. Where do the libraries and librarians stand within the online information services industry, especially, in addressing the questions related to coping with technologies to improve the online information services model that the library's management needs to keep up-to-date with.
