Abstract:  Through a questionnaire survey, data collected from 138 users from the Department of Chemistry, Mangalore University revealed that majority of the users visit the library to borrow books, to consult periodicals and browse UGC INFONET journals. OPAC and the assistance of the library staff are the primary means to locate information. The library resources in chemistry are current and useful but the periodicals both primary and secondary are inadequate. Concludes that various findings of the present study serve as guiding principles in developing need based collection and provide effective services to the users’ community of the department of chemistry of the Mangalore University in particular and paves the way for conducting similar studies in other disciplines.
