This study explores user perception, the use of an academic library, and the correlation between user perception and library use. The findings indicate that the B.Ed College library is a preferred place to study and spend time during non-class times on campus. The frequent user activities in the library included individual study, reading, computer use, finding information, group study, using reference and information services, and meeting and socializing. The correlation between library use and each of the user activities was examined. The findings suggest that users perceive the B.Ed College library primarily as a place for learning and information seeking. The study shows how users perceive and use the library, and provides insights into how libraries can strengthen their place and advance their role in the academic community.
