Abstract / Summary: 
Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have brought opportunities and challenges to the provision of library and information services in the health sector worldwide. Libraries in Sub-Saharan Africa that experienced massive budget cuts in the 1990s due to declining economies have now embraced ICTs to manage their information resources and services. ICTs have improved access to health information resources by those libraries that have Internet connectivity. A survey was carried out to examine the impact of electronic resources on the provision of health and medical information services in Kenya, Africa. This paper reports the results of the survey.
