The aim of this study is to examine the use and access of grey literature by Scholars of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and to evaluate the grey literature contents along with general contents in AMU Repository. The study used a quantitative approach using the survey method to collect data by applying the questionnaire as a tool and analyzing the archived resources in AMU repository. Results showed that the Thesis is the highest in number among other archived resources in AMU Repository. Based on the survey, majority of the Scholars opted Theses & Dissertations as the most essential resources for their research activities, whereby they expressed the need of an information system for effective retrieval of grey resources from diverse access points within/outside the campus. There have been various studies in the past on grey literature, but none have intended to cover the use of grey literature by Scholars of Aligarh Muslim University.
