Abstract

In this ever and fast changing world where technology has intruded into almost every sphere of human activity and sources of information are no exceptions to it. Society has imbibed and embraced electronics in its every form & content and electronic information is just simply a by-product of such a wonderful gift of electronics to human beings. Man has moved from manual to mechanical and to deal with information products manually in this automated and mechanical world has almost moved out of human domain. Contrary to this fact, present study has been carried out to assess the use of printed sources of information in electronic era by students, teachers and scholars in their study, teaching and research activities. Attempt was made to look as how far the preference is given by students, teachers and scholars to conventional means of information dissemination. The study has been undertaken to assess the need and importance of printed sources of information and preference given to print by user community over electronic sources of information. The study do has paid emphasis over the constant procurement of printed sources of information by libraries and information centers and how scholars still have strong disposition towards publishing their research results in printed and hybrid journals rather in electronic journals alone.

Keywords: Electronic resources; Printed resources; Information technology; Information; Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University (BGSBU).
