Abstract

The present academic environment is captured by information technology. ICT has developed an Internet facility to every academic users and library. But there are many problems to measure the quality of user‘s interest whether they like print format or electronic format resources available in the university system. To get the solution of these problems I have conducted a survey in University of Delhi Central Library users for knowing their interest in the available electronic or print resources. In this paper I will focus on the usability of the resources among the Delhi University users. After long discussions with users I found that they are more interested to deal with electronic resources rather than print resources. There are many reasons to opt the E-Resources by the users. Now a day‘s many online resource facilities are provided by the University libraries like e-journals, e-magazines, e-books etc. During the collection of questionnaires, I found that there was a huge difference in the proportion of male and female respondents. In totality I found that maximum users are willing to access the electronic resources rather than print. This paper will be of interest of its users, through its analysis of usability towards print as well as e-resources in academic institutions. Delhi University is the core centre of the Academia. So, I choose this university for conducting this research paper.
