Abstract: The paper presents the results of a survey of the information seeking behaviour of students at Dev Samaj College, Chandigarh. The purpose of the survey was to explore the use of information technology by the college students for seeking information and to know how they access e-resources. The study made an effort to determine the sources of accessing e-resources in particular. A questionnaire was randomly circulated to one hundred students, who visited the library. The overall response rate was 64%. It was revealed that less than fifty percent of the respondents were not aware about e-resources. It was found that the students of the College use search engines as a major source to access e-resources for their information needs and for the purpose of updating knowledge on their subjects of interest. In order to overcome the hindrances in accessing the eresources, the study recommends awareness programmes for the students and to provide training on web searching and retrieval skills.
