IT sector have affected on developing countries. India have also affected by Information technology. Internet, networking Android system, advance software and Cloud Computing these new inventions affected on human being day to day life style. Higher education is basic need of our country and information science also affected on this area. Today we will see that every single second invented new subject and new technology rapidly. Information and knowledge has no boundary and no any limitation. According to research scholars, readers and normal human being also want to update our knowledge time to time and want all new information related to any subject or new technology. Library is resource to provide information and its related material to research scholars and its users. We know that information and its related material has no limitation it’s very hard to provide all information and update our users. Library is growing Organization but a traditional library has some boundaries. They have limited resource and limited income source. So it’s not easy to provide all information and its material to users. For this difficulty in information technology is very usefully. In short we says that problem is worked as like solution. I mean information explore information and create difficultly but in other side it can really helpful. Cloud Computing is new technology in information science and its more effective and helpful in libraries. In this Paper we will discuss what is cloud computing and how it can helpful and useful in library and information science. What is the major deference between Digital Library and Cloud Computing?
