A Virtual Library also known as a Digital Library or an Electronic Library may be defined as the online facility provided by a conventional library to read books and access other facilities or it may mean a website which offers links to various sites with a large store of information in a catalogued or archived form. The term is more often used to refer in a collective manner to the entire number of online books and other literary material related to any subject available on the Internet.

A virtual library generally is part of a network with linkages to other libraries providing universal access to information though virtual libraries which are off-shoots of conventional ones require you to be a member first. Universities that offer a distance education facility more often than not have a virtual library for their students.
