In the modern era information science is very essential to get information and statistics of various departments like education, agriculture and the service sectors, In the Indian context, majority of Indians are living in rural areas and working in Agriculture or small scale industries. In India 74.3 percent population lives in rural areas and 25.7 percentage population lives in urban areas. The agriculture sector provides livelihood to 64 percent. For the development of the country, it is very important to emphasize on the development of rural community. Information is one of the most important factors for the process of development of any sector especially rural community. Information is birth right of a human being irrespective to the class and creed he/she belongs to. Particularly in a big country like India, information needs to be shared and disseminated to all the citizen of the country. So far, libraries and professionals have been serving the population in a closed framework which needs to be changed in the changing context beyond physical buildings to virtual environment. Anything and everything can be found over Internet and this environmental change has changed the information seeking behaviour of the users.
