Abstract: In the scientific community is built scientific communication which will continuously produce various kinds of scientific information. Scientific information was recorded in a variety of media such as books, journals, research reports, articles, papers, audio-visual, nor in an electronic or digital media. The media are often called library materials or documents. Supposedly, the documents are available and accessible at the University Library. But in reality, the documents that containing scientific information relevant to the needs of users sometimes very hard to find. Many factors, some of which are: the growth of scientific information is very powerful today; many of the scientific information that is not publicly disclosed; the tendency of scientific information began to be published in the electronic media that requires the library should use information technology. The factors above is a part of the challenges faced by academic libraries today. To confront this challenge, academic libraries require a large fee, librarians who have expertise in the field of information technology, and a number of other requirements.
