In the competitive space of alternative information service suppliers surrounding any organization that undertakes an educational mission in the society the role of the traditional library as the primary aggregator of content to its community becomes less unique. Users (students and educators) want control of their own information environment. Another change in learning environments is that the quality of someone’s teaching is no longer a personal or departmental matter. Education is considered as a service that is evaluated for its quality, just like other services. New requirements are imposed on the knowledge industry in partnership with librarians and educators to provide adequate changes in information infrastructures and education methods to support learning as a lifetime activity, learning anytime and anywhere.
