The paper streamlines information technology, applications of information technology in distance education and libraries in distance education. The significance of the impact of  IT for library and information services lies in the reconfiguration of exiting services, the creation of entirely new services and the integration of services in ways previously unknown. Because of IT library and information centres are gradually expanding their role by functioning as publishers, database producers, and online hosts with the appropriate application of technologies viz… electronic publishing, E-mail and networking.
