The Iraq Universities Started to use automated systems in libraries and information centers since the last century, and suffered periodically from using a few old systems, including Baghdad University Libraries. It was difficult to find fit systems suitable to their multiple needs, in addition to the problems of using equipment material and lack of trained staff to accommodate dealing with regulations and new technologies according to its environment.
Planning is the most important element of any project's success and longevity, for any project without prior planning processes will face problems and obstacles, and the main question is whether there was prior planning regulations for the use of WINISIS or CDSISIS at Baghdad University Libraries?
This research aimed to spot light on the reality of Baghdad University Libraries, reviewing the results of reluctance of the Iraqi researchers of using Baghdad university libraries’ resources, and their attitude towards e-libraries and web services and their contents. This calls for a reconsiderration to how to rebuild a developed and automated system, to restructure Baghdad University libraries e-resources access by using Baghdad University Libraries as a typical sample, an infrastructure for suitable solutions to build our e-society.
