Abstract

The revolution of the technology that allows people to transmit and receive information has opened a new age in the history of mankind. Alongside the rise of e-commerce, e-health and even e-democracy, the Internet has been positioned as a potential saviour of lifelong learning and learning society. The information technology revolution is creating a new form of electronic, interactive education that should blossom into a lifelong learning system that allows almost anyone to learn anything from anywhere at anytime. This paper discusses the e-governance initiatives undertaken by the Government of India, non-profit and non-government organisations. The role of different types of libraries in providing e-government information and services to the population is discussed with more emphasis on public and government libraries. Also highlights the importance of information literacy and lifelong learning in effectively utilizing the e-governance initiatives undertaken in different parts of rural India and proposes possible programs and initiatives for implementation of information literacy and lifelong learning.
