University library being considered as knowledge hub caters to the information needs of diverse categories of users like students, research scholars, scientists, teachers, etc. by providing access to a wide variety of learning resources. Apart from print resources university libraries are increasingly adding electronic resources like E-Books, E-Journals, E-Theses, databases, E-Standards, Institutional repositories, consortia, online public access catalogue and other networked resources to their collections which have been widely used nowadays as primarily for teaching, learning as well as research activities. Since the undergraduate students are not involved in any kind of research work thus presumed to make use mostly of books/notes/ e-books to fulfill their academic needs. The present review study is being conducted to ascertain the kind of information resources mostly used by the undergraduate students and further to know their awareness level about resources & services of the library. It is basically a systematic review of studies conducted in the past to know their awareness level, information-seeking behavior and attitude towards different resources used in achieving the academic goals. Further study will also try to find out whether the academic level of study has any difference with regard to the use of different resources and services.
