Abstract
 

The study discussed in this article was aimed to investigate the usages of e-resources, the relationship of access points with devices for accessing e-resources and influence of the use of e-resources on academic efficiency of faculty and technical staff of India’s first Agricultural University—Govind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar, India. The study also showed usage levels of different types of e-resources amongst users if access points are correlated with devices employed and the effect of e-resources on academic efficiency of academics.


A questionnaire was used as a data collection instrument. The use of e-resources was studied using a method to scaling responses, following Likert Scales. Data obtained were converted into scores using scale rating.  Standard statistical techniques were used for the analysis of variance, correlation coefficients, and others.


Originality/value


This study will help understand the extent to which different e-resources can be used, the relationship between access points and devices used, and the influence of e-resources on academic efficiency. The librarians engaged in agricultural universities can also utilize findings of the study for carrying out acquisition and management of e-resources.
