The introduction of information technologies in libraries is no longer a matter to be considered. Any library that has not implemented the use of these technologies to its services is considered outdated. The changes brought about by the convergence of computer and telecommunications technologies into the library has totally revolutionalized the nature of services. Unfortunately, libraries in the developing countries of the world are unable to keep up with these developments. Various problems are militating against the full implementation of technologies in these libraries. Analyzes these problems from a study of a veterinary library in Nigeria which uses a CD‐ROM to offer services to its clients. Makes suggestions and recommendations toward overcoming these problems in developing countries.
