This study identified relative importance of information sources among the science faculty members and research scholars in a University environment is emphasized. In this Studies the relative importance of information sources among the science faculty members and research scholars and on the basis of statistical tests concludes that the personal attributes of science scientists such as designation, gender, age, qualification, subject, experience, nature of work and nature of research in a university environment have bearing on the use of information resources. The study reveals that scientific periodicals, abstracting and indexing journals, Bibliographic databases and Newspapers were the resources of information which were most frequently used. The results show that position and education are good predictors of information use while professional experience has little power in explaining variations in information source use.
