Abstract: Information is the key element for any kind of research and development. With the introduction of computers and other telecommunication facilities, information is now available to the scientists in a variety of formats. The study explores the habit of use of documents and the library by the scientists, engineers and technologists of Indian petroleum industry in the electronic era. It attempts to correlate the need of information with the habits of using of library. Concludes that information needs and habit of library use of scientists and technologists are related to their rank in the organization. The online access services, offline digital sources and Internet services are the most popular library services in upcoming electronic culture. With the emerging needs and increased fascination of scientific and engineering work groups for handling and use of electronic information resources, the information centres and libraries are expected to acclimatize with the inherent pressing needs of changed mindset of users.
