Can we consider Cloud Computing as one of the area which may be Out Sourced by a Library ?

Almost all of us know about Cloud Computing.  In case of Cloud Computing, all the data are stored in another server, instead of the library's own server or computer. It is handled by the third party. So, can we consider Cloud Computing as one of the area which may be out sourced by a library ? Respected professionals, I am requesting you to give some light on this topic to clear my confusion.

Yuvaraj sir,

How is Cloud Computing different from Google Drive services as G'drive provides us simple Storing & Retrieving the Data on our request? How a third party offer us the Library services with out installing the Library automation software in our server or Desktop?

Respected MAYANK YUVARAJ Sir, please say something about your cloud library software. Is it installed by the library itself or some other party ? Till now I am confused about my question whether cloud computing is the area which is being outsourced by a library.

Maam, How can we say as Cloud Computing is an OUT SOURCE work? As per Yuvaraj sir, we use the Hardware & software of 3rd parties but, we our self offer the library services to our clientele from our work place utilizing such 'wares'. Outsourcing means giving an assignment (Service) say Circulation counter work to third party instead of doing it with our employes.  The Cloud Computing servers allow us to perform our routine work using  their 'wares' but they do not work.

Simply to say, the Cl.Compt. servers give us their tools to perform our work.Thanks madam.

I thank you very much Yuvaraj sir. I could learn very much from you on Cloud computing. I wish for successful completion of your forth coming Presentation on Cl. Compting.

Thank you very much MAYANK YUVARAJ & Srinivas Garimella for your valuable replies...


Hi Mayank,

So nice to know about your research, and your work on Cloud Computing Software for libraries. 

Here i have few questions for you.. pl. reply me.

  1. How do you personally foresee libraries adopting the Cloud Computing.(Indian perspective: considering the policies across different types of libraries, Ownerships (Govt & Private), Budgets, Skills, Knowledge and Awareness etc.,)
  2. Who will play the lead role for this transformation?
  3. What the “wow” factors which are going to attract the public / society or community to get their support?


I appreciate your response. Congrats for your research! Also thanks to Ms. Chanda Paul for your topic.

Yuvaraj sir, . i have some question on what do u mean by cloud library software. and as u only said our data is not save in google gmail. so wat is your view on that within 2020 everything in cloud as claimed by cloud companies.


Thanks for your valuable information.

“Everything Cloud” is a proclamation we often hear now-a-days, but we have long way to go.. especially libraries.  As you rightly mentioned high level of awareness are needed among our fellow professionals. Since you think UGC has to play a major role for education sector, higher officials of UGC are to be convinced first.  I believe professional social networks should be used aggressively otherwise 2020 will come fast!!

Again thanks for your sharings.

Dear Friend Yuvaraj,

Heartily congrats you!!!!!!!!!!
