The study shows a comparative analysis of five BRICS countries National Libraries. We have classified them on the basis of parameters such as their collection, Web2.0 applicability, virtual reference service, website covering language, visitors service, number of institutional repository, software used (digital library or content management software). The website security feature was also discussed as it plays an important role in securing user data. We have also included the user friendliness of impaired persons so that they can also access the websites with ease. The overall analysis found the total collection and rare collections of these national libraries. Most probably the National library of Brazil, Russia and India are more progressive than the other two countries such as China and South Africa.
