Information Needs and Information-Seeking Behaviour of Faculty Members at the Islamia University of Bahawalpur
This study evaluates the educational and information needs and information-seeking behaviour of the faculty members of the Islamia University of Bahawalpur. Questionnaires and semi-structured interviews were used with one hundred faculty members. One hundred fifty questionnaires were distributed and 100 returned. The data showed that most faculty (76%) consider the Internet the most useful source of information, along with books, journals, and informal channels. The teachers from Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities, and Islamic Learning also want up-to-date resources relevant to their fields via a digital library. Teachers complained about the insufficient provision of computers in the library. The demand for more advanced services was also expressed.
