Sharma (2009) led an investigation of GGIP University, Delhi and found that e-journals are progressively being used by engineering faculty and students in universities and other engineering colleges. The findings demonstrate that 88.46 percent educators and 93.
33 percent research scholars are using e-journals at GGIP University, Delhi. This is largely due to higher IL skills of users in both the institutions. Franklin & Plum (2004) examined the methodology and results from Web-based surveys of more than 15,000 networked electronic services users in the United States.
Results from the Web-based overview demonstrated that there were approximately four remote networked electronic services users for each in-house user. This proportion was considerable higher for faculty, staff, and research fellows at the academic health sciences libraries, where more than five remote users for each in-house user were recorded. This study examined ‘What can we think about the usage and users of networked electronic resources in U.S. medical and academic libraries, particularly the individuals who do not come into the library?’ It demonstrates that the resson of remote and in house user is unique. In addition to this, the measurement of networkedelectronic resources has created a large amount of current literature.
Patterns of database use in academic libraries, particularly by time of month, day of the week, and time have been reported by Tenopir and Read (2000) .Gunn (2002) condenses the probability and non-probability based, Electronic survey categories originally proposed by Couper (2000).The non-probability categories of Web surveys include polls as entertainment, unrestricted self-selected surveys, and volunteer opt-in panels. Probabilistic Web surveys incorporate capture studies (every nth respondent is surveyed), list-based samples (usually solicited through an e-mail list sample), mixed mode surveys (where the Web is only one tool), and pre-recruited panels of Internet users. Srivastava (2002) uncovered the information use pattern of researchers in chemistry. According to is study the researchers were mainly depend on periodical for their information use.
It was clear from this examination that the researchers largely use the literature published in periodicals and also that the % age of books years of their publications are more than those published with in 5 years of their use. This investigation confirmed that the researchers have relied on only few countries , mainly U.S.A. and U.
K. for original information.Orme (2004) revealed that Texas information Literacy tutorial as an example of online direction can be at least as effective as face-to -face instruction for teaching first year students fundamental information research skill. De Groote and Dorsch paper looked to decide use of online journals and databases and to assess current user characteristics associated with the use of online resources in an academic health sciences centre.
The Library of the Health Sciences–Peoria is a regional site of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) Library with 350 print journals, more than 4,000 online journals, and multiple online databases. An overview was intended to evaluate online journal use, print journal use, database use, computerliteracy levels, IL level and other library user characteristics. An overview was sent through group mail to all (471) UIC Peoria faculty, residents, and students. Ninety-eight percent of the students, faculty, and residents reported having convenient access to PC associated with the Web.
While 53% of the users indicated they searched MEDLINE at least once a week, different databases showed much lower usage. In General, 71% of respondents showed a preference for online over print journals when conceivable. The investigation found that users prefer online resources to print, and many choose to access these online resources remotely. Comfort and full-text availability appear to play roles in selecting online resources.
The discoveries propose that databases without connections to full text and online journal collections without links from bibliographic databases will have lower use. These findings have implications for promotion of library resources, and end-user training (IL). undefined undefined undefined undefined undefined undefined undefined undefined undefined undefined undefined undefined
