Technologies have entered libraries. Scientists in research institutions, for their research work, have to use technology–based information services, irrespective of their gender. With earlier studies reporting gender bias in the usage of technology, this chapter makes an attempt to study if gender has a role in the use of Information and Communication Technology. The chapter further analyses if cultural, family, or educational background can change this generalized notion.
