To conduct the study, a survey was made, and structured interview was also conducted with the Librarian/Head of the institution of select libraries in India. From the findings of the study, it reveals that most of libraries/institution have good collection of print as well as non print materials. For automated services in the library, it was found that only four libraries out of twelves libraries selected are using library automation software. Except IGNCA no one is using digital library software in the area of art.
