Scholars are intensive users of information and study of their work has long been important to information science. For the field of personal information management (PIM), the study of scholars’ behavior has been less central, yet in the course of their work, scholars generate large collections of information and managing this material must at least in part determine their effectiveness. The present research study focused how scholars manage their information which is collected during Ph.D. work in print and digital format using different tools as well as their own skills. Such as web 2.0 tools, Information and communication technology (ICT) skills, cataloging skills, classification skills. It also studied strategies used by scholars for storing, organizing, and retrieving information and how they overcome with the problems they encounterwhile acquiring, retrieving, storing the required information. It highlighted useful strategies for storing, organizing, and facilitating access to saved information.
