English abstract

Library is a repository of resources that create a fundamental change in education. Adequate electronic resource facilities empower and enrich the higher education system in meeting the best academic needs. Users are able to access e-resources either by local or remote locations. In this paper, we consider only electronic resources available at National Institutes of Technology (NITs) libraries across the country. The electronic resources consist of online journals databases, CD-ROM material and audio/video course materials. The survey finds majority of libraries use 11 to 15 number of online journals databases, whereas 25 per cent libraries have the facility of more than 16 number of online journals databases. Very few libraries (20%) indicate that they have less than 10 online journals databases at their end.Eighty five percent of libraries have the facilities e-resources on CD-ROMs/DVDs form. About 90 per cent of libraries obtain audio/video course materials. This study also reveals the zone-wise performance among NIT libraries in India with respect to electronic resources availability. The South zone (75%) libraries have better off in comparing to the other zones libraries.
