Abstract

The current Research paper is aimed at to analyze the status of libraries and various challenges faced in the rural areas of Jammu Province of the state. The researcher has conducted interviews of various stakeholders during the field survey consisted of students for collecting the data to complete the present research work. And after gathering the information, it was found that the libraries situated in the rural areas were facing a lot of problems in delivering their services-disbursement of information and knowledge to the stakeholders. Despite of fulfilling the Information gap with application of information and technology, the libraries were unable to meet the demands even in old fashion. Therefore there is a high need of research in the area to make these libraries also as per as the level of modern libraries situated in the cities.  The libraries in urban area have gone through the tremendous changes due to adoption of modern techniques in delivering the services to their stakeholders. There is easiness in managing the books, issuing and returning the material which seemed lacking in the rural context.
