Hakan Aydin


Cloud computing is a service model that allows access to information resources such as computer networks, servers, databases and computer applications at any time and from anywhere. University libraries, like other libraries, already started to benefit from the cloud computing service model that provides benefits such as diversity, flexibility, continuity, scalability, and cost effectiveness in their information services. In recent years, the increase in the number of universities has also increased the number of university libraries in Turkey. Cloud computing will enable university libraries, especially those with limited budgets, to provide information services more cost effectively. In this study it is aimed to evaluate the position of university libraries in Turkey within the context of cloud computing. The structured interview technique was used in the research. SPSS program was used to evaluate the data. Percentage values, frequency and Chi square statistic calculations were used to analyze the data. As a result of the research, the existing conditions and problems in the usage cloud service model in university libraries have been tried to be identified, a road map for solving these problems has been put into in this context.
