English abstract

The paper presents the results of a survey of the undergraduate, graduate and post graduate students of the University of the Punjab, Lahore, Pakistan. The objective of the study was to explore the Internet use behavior of students. The results show that most of the students use this technology for course related reading and research needs. They are new users of the Internet. They use it at the University Library’s Digital Lab Unit as well as their departments and homes. A large number of them have learnt to use the Internet tools by themselves, or relying on assistance from friends without attending any formal training programs. Ease of work and time saving are the reasons of Internet use among university students. Google as a search engine and Yahoo as an email service are the most popular among students. The paper recommends that the university authorities should arrange training programs for the students’ Internet use.
