Current study aimed at examining the influence of adopting IS (Context, People, Process, Information Technology (IT) and Data/Information) in promoting information systems (IS) within private universities' libraries in Jordan. Quantitative approach was adopted and (91) individuals were exposed to a questionnaire. Findings of study proved that all IS elements were influential on information services within libraries, results presented that infrastructure of IT had the highest influence on information services within libraries as it constitute 36.6% of influence; this indicated that the well-built IT infrastructure is important to in promoting information services, also, continuous upgrading of such tools is one of the most influential aspects that served libraries in presenting the best information techniques possible. From results; study recommended officials within organizations to possess "knowledge of systems" and "organizational knowledge" at the same time so as to tackles and handle technological resources as according to needs, know the problems of the library and employ information and data to solve them.
