The questionnaire is designed in such a way to collect the data from faculty members of engineering college libraries. Questionnaires were circulated among 890 library users and received 705 responses. The response rate is 79%. It is evident from the study majority 63.54% of respondents are male users. 53.75% majority of respondent users are Assistant Professors. The research found that most respondents visit the library daily, feel that the library had convenient working hours, a library for borrowing books, reference books, and electronic journals.
