There is not a single library exist in this world which fulfill all the requirements of their readers. Regardless of the budget, practically it’s not possible to meet every reader’s need. Specifically academic institutes, where libraries have to take care of their readers' needs as well as subjects studied in those institutes. In the world of information, libraries have not the potential to purchase all published books on all subjects. Due to limited budget and some other issues, libraries only focus on some important subjects that cover their needs. Still they do their best to fulfill the needs of readers and guide them in best way with limited resources.
On the issue of resource sharing in libraries, efforts by Dr. Muhammad Tariq (In-Charge Library) Library Information Services, COMSATS University Islamabad, Lahore Campus collaborate with Pakistan Scientific and Technological Information Center (PASTIC) and successfully organized one day National Seminar entitled "Resource Sharing, Networking and Consortium: Challenges, Prospects and Way Forward".
