This paper is written to describe the importance of digital libraries to be applied in university library through the exploration of the advantages offered by digital libraries, as well as the challenges that will be faced in the implementation of digital libraries as infrastructure to support education. The exploration was carried out by conducting a literature review from some empirical study resources. Rapid technological developments in all fields including the library are the cause of the emergence of digital libraries. As a source of information and learning resources for educational academics, digital libraries offer a variety of advantages over conventional (traditional) libraries. With these various advantages, conventional libraries are irreplaceable, but the existence of digital libraries completes conventional libraries. In addition to offering many advantages, various obstacles found in the digital libraries practice such as facilities problems, digitizing collections, copyrights, human resource, and cost issues. These obstacles will later become challenges for library managers who will apply digital libraries in their university. The result found that conventional library remained irreplaceable by the digital library.
