The article reports on the potential of cloud computing to revolutionize library information technology (IT) technology. It cites library service providers that offer a range of services from complete hosting and system management to software-only and support-only solutions. It cites the increasing importance of an adaptive IT services evaluation strategy that can change and be responsive to the speed with which technology evolves regardless of whether the library goes in-house or cloud-based.
