The paper focuses on globalization from the perspective of “information access, transfer, exchange and use”. It shows that the 21st Century African medical Library user is slowly but steadily complimenting the traditional way of accessing and sharing library resources in print format, with a more advanced electronic way, which is proving to be more efficient, but with a lot of challenges to a developing continent. The preliminary findings indicate inadequate funding as the underlying problem.
