Abstract: The study analyses the usage pattern of e-resources of Shreenivas Deshpande Library IIT(BHU), Varanasi, during the Covid-19 and post Covid-19. The usage data of e-resources is from 2018 until June 2022. The research shows that the usage of e-journals was affected more during the pandemic than e-books. The use of databases and standards also decreased during the pandemic and increased as the Institute reopened and research work started. Highly used journals Science Direct, Springer link, IEEE, and OSA witnessed a sudden fall after March 2020 in usage after the lockdown. Also, access went down even after access to all resources through a remote access facility. The analysis of results will support the library professionals in raising their voices for more budgets before the funding agencies and higher authorities.
