In medical libraries, the latest technologies are increasingly used to collect, store, retrieve and disseminate a great amount of information to help medical professionals in their day-to-day education, research and clinical practices. The medical websites and databases developed by medical institutions, associations, agencies and publishers provide the latest information. In a developing country like India, medical professionals are quite aware of the new technologies used by their counterparts in the developed nations. In Jammu and Kashmir, there are nine Medical Colleges in Jammu and and Kashmir and majority of the students and faculty members require training to use electronic information sources.
