Automated Literature databases provide access to relevant Literature and are an important research source in all disciplines. These databases offer speed, flexibility, currency and convenience in retrieving relevant information. Databases are generating specific to one field such as Health care, Social Sciences, Education, Mathematics and so on. Databases provide a defined, controlled, predictable and efficient means of finding relevant information on a particular topic. E.g. CD-ROM drive, CINAHL and MEDLINE were the most frequent used databases.

CONCLUSION The future libraries will emerge live wires active on E-learning to educate the users and facilitate access to information. It is E learning which will create a Paperless Society and Paperless Libraries. Electronic Journals offer certainly possibilities for a transformation of the information chain. Electronic journals should not just be a medium for scholarly communication but should also serve the functions of quality control and archiving.
