In Pakistan, the use of electronic gadgets like Ipad, smartphones, laptops, etc. is on the rise. With the exponential growth and availability of digital reading contents, it is also a matter of concern that how readers interact with digital contents? And whether they are aware of features associated with electronic reading devices? The current study aims to examine the level of students’ digital information literacy skills and to understand the status of their interaction with digital contents. A survey was conducted using a questionnaire as a data collection tool. The data were collected from the students of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) recognized large and medium-sized universities of Lahore. Findings highlight the student’s self-perceived digital information literacy skills and the usage patterns of different techniques/functions associated with on-screen reading.
