Abstract


The study of human medicine involves acquiring large volumes of knowledge and translating it into prevention, detection and treatment of disease. The 21st century has seen an increased integration of technology into medical education.  The ease of access and cost effectiveness of Internet resources has opened the Pandora box of opportunities for learners in education field.

The increased demand of digital learning has made training of faculty in E-Learning a necessity and thus should be a part of continuous faculty development programs.

Faculty and librarians of medical institutions need to increasingly collaborate with each other to make acquisition, distribution and utilization of learning resources more effective for faculty and students. Librarians can become effective educators for students.

A competent physician in the modern world is created by the fusion of conventional and digital learning.
