The main purpose of this paper is to explore how librarians in Indian Central Universities are using Cloud Computing tools into their daily library services and works. A structured questionnaire was designed & personally distributed as well as mailed to 407 respondents. Responses show that librarians are heavily reliant on cloud computing tools and majority of them are using various devices and want to imply the same to improve library services. Economics, delivery models and service layers and the user`s preference of cloud computing are the core drivers of this phenomena. However, majority of the librarians showed their concern over the security.
