Abstract

The study shows that around 50% of the research scholars and students who have participated in the study were from the age group of below 25, around 30% from the age group of 25-30, 15.14% from the age group of 31-35, and 10.27% from the age group of above 35. The results reveal that frequency of library visit is good enough among respondents as 34.05% respondents used it daily, 29.73% used it twice in a week, whereas 21.62% used it weekly. This means that more than 85% students used it regularly. The present study shows that 50.27% of the respondents spent less than 1 hour in the library, 27.57% of the respondents spent 1-2 hours in the library. 8.65% users spent 2-3 hours and 13.51% spent more than3 hours in the library. The present study shows that 40% of respondents were very satisfied with the quality of library services, 55.68% satisfied with the library services, only a very few respondents 4.32% partially satisfied with the library services.
