E-resources and its usages are escalating rapidly today. This study is an attempt to assess the consumption of e-resources and the impact of e-literacy on the college students of Shillong. For this an experimental method was adopted. Students were given guidance on e-resources and the data was collected on different stages using a structured questionnaire to see the impact on their consumption habits. One premier institute, that is, St. Anthony’s College was selected for the study. It is spectacular to find that there is a significant difference in e-resources consumption among college students at the beginning and at the end of the study. The study shows that there was low e-resource consumption prior to the e-resource literacy input. However, there was a spike in e-resource consumption after proper guidance was given.
