The rise of COVID-19 limits library facilities to users. As a result Libraries rethink the websites as the primary path of patron’s interaction. The landscape of academic libraries are changed in terms of collections, services, spaces and operations.
As a part of embedded librarianship. Librarians discourse the value of print collections, encourage access versus archives, enhance e-everything, promote distinctive digitized collections, and include self-service models and virtual alternatives.
Now libraries are perfectly positioned to assist development of online courses. The inauguration of virtual lab environments, built on current voice recognition and data visualization initiatives are helping researchers who are unable to conduct physical experiments. Researchers are being facilitated with data deposition and plagiarism tools to support and distribute their research.  Thus a library website works as a virtual front door to evolve to be more user friendly, responsive, customizable, continuous learning and development, as well as doing more with less.
