dc.description.abstractA questionnaire based survey of a sample population of 69 agriculture undergraduates revealed that they often depend on search engines, Wikipedia, classmates and lecturers for information. The study found that a few undergraduates never used e-resources or never took the help of friends and family, librarians, library collections or personal collections. The study recommends that the students be provided adequate training in information literacy. Also the number of computers available in the library and the faculty computer centre should be increased so that the students can easily access e-resources.en_US
