Abstract: Impact of library holdings in terms of physical and online access on the doctoral studies in Tezpur University have been studied based on citation appended to the PhD dissertations in four subjects clubbed under the School of Science & Technology. Two latest dissertations (degree awarded) from each four subjects have been taken for the study selected through systematic sampling method. Category wise distribution of the cited items viz. journals, books & monographs, conference proceedings, electronic sources, web citations and others have been studied. Category wise percentile distribution and availability of cited items in the parent library have been calculated for journals and books followed by preparation of rank list of journals for each four subjects studied. Some well known statistical and bibliometric parameters have been applied for the study. Suggestive approach to re-engineering of collection development policy of the university libraries have been lined up based on the findings.
