Abstract: All over the world, people have witnessed the transformation of libraries. These transformational changes which affected mostly academic libraries, have seen changes on how services are provided, research being conducted, facilities being upgraded and learning made possible. Hawkins (2001) stated that “the Web is not a library, and access to it is far from egalitarian. This needs to be clearly understood”. This shows that most people believe that internet can replace the library and they can get all types of informational sources from it. Therefore, the librarians should take on the challenge of guiding the users on how to evaluate and identify the accurate and correct sources using the right method. This can be achieved only if the librarians are well prepared and are aware of the new transformational changes occurring in the libraries.
