This is my research article. not published anywhere.


Purpose - The current analytical survey investigates the utilization and effectiveness of digital libraries in 51 self-financed Engineering Colleges affiliated to the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) in the State of Karnataka, India.

Design/methodology/approach - The research paper is based on survey of Final year (IV year) undergraduate students who use these digital information resources to a great extent for their project work, and faculty members have been chosen for the study. Questionnaire tool was used to gather data.

Findings - Utilization of Digital Information Resources for overall purposes is found to a large extent among respondents with mean value of 2.28±0.89. The Mann Whitney test shows that there is a significant difference in utilization between student and faculty members as p=0.000
