Hansa Hinger and Nabi Hasan
The present study has been undertaken to assess the attitude of Internet users, taking in to account the use of Internet by P.G. students and research scholars of M.L.S. University library, India. The major objectives were to identify that (a) Internet is not a substitute for the library and (b) to find out the use of Internet resources by P.G. students and research scholars for their study and research work. For this purpose, a well structured questionnaire was distributed among P.G. students and research scholars of two faculties/colleges of M.L.S. University. These were Science and Commerce & Management Studies. Data was collected from 88/100 respondents. The paper verified that respondents were not fully satisfied with Internet facilities provided by M.L.S. University library. The findings of the study also revealed actual facts about respondents. On the basis of findings, some suggestions have been made about how the use of Internet among the students and research scholars can be increased. To utilize the resources of Internet to its maximum, it is necessary to make the users well-versed in the surfing and browsing of the net.
