With the emergence of information technology, the demand for e-resources has been growing day by day. Advancement of ICT infrastructure leads to the wide use of e-resources. Nowadays, users can access e-resources on their desktops. N-LIST is an initiation to provide selected e-journals and e-books to the registered colleges in India. The present study was carried out among post-graduate students in autonomous colleges of Kerala. The study aims to examine the awareness and use of N-LIST e-resources, purposes of use, level of satisfaction, and problems faced by post-graduate students while accessing N-LIST e-resources. For this purpose, the investigator prepared a well-structured questionnaire as a tool for data collection. The hypotheses of study demand the use of different statistical techniques, such as simple percentage methods and the ANOVA test. The present study reveals that the majority of respondents are aware and use N-LIST e-resources. However, daily usage of N-LIST e-resources among post-graduate students is still not up to the mark. Based on the findings, the paper recommends that college libraries should enhance their infrastructure and provide proper Wi-Fi facility for the optimum utilisation of the N-LIST e-resources.
