Abstract :

Everyone needs information about everything in day-to-day life. People, right from the organizational level to the personal level, from the highly educated and experienced person to school children, require information for taking the right decision for everything in life. Access to information is generally recognized as contributing significantly to the efficiency of any organization. In an era of networked information, 'internet', the largest worldwide network of networks, has emerged as the most powerful tool for instant access to information. Information is now just a 'finger touch' distance away from the user and it would be appropriate to say that the internet has become the global bibliotheque which provides the fastest access to the right kind of information in nano-seconds of time to the end-user at any time, and at any place in the world. Jackson, et al. (2011) remarked that internet plays an active role in education through its easy availability to everyone, everywhere, and at any time, irrespective of gender, race/ethnicity, income or other socio-demographic characteristics. Today, the internet is regarded as the central resource for knowledge and information.
