Abstract

Major libraries have large collections and circulation. Managing libraries electronically has resulted in the creation and management of large library databases. The interconnection of libraries and sharing resources across libraries has resulted in the management of very large databases. Most large and/or multinational industries worldwide have exploited such opportunities by applying data warehouse technology to their data repositories to discover knowledge that had helped them to gain competitive advantage through decision making. The same can be done for libraries using the available large databases. This paper identifies the changes that had taken placed in libraries due to technology and how the data warehouse technology could assist them to discover knowledge and improve services.
