Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln



The study aimed to explore the status, adequacy, and use of library collection at the G.B. Pant University of Agriculture & Technology and Indian Agricultural Research Institute. A well-designed questionnaire was randomly administered to both the universities students in order to collect the relevant data. The five-point Likert scale and summated mean score have also been applied in questionnaire design and data analysis. The results presented substantial differences in the status, adequateness, use, purpose, and satisfaction in terms of library collections at both universities. Electronic resources and databases have turn out to be a major component of collection in meeting students’ information demands. To boost the usage of collection, libraries must review their policies and procedures along with their collection.
