Keywords:University Libraries, Fishery college libraries, Information needs, User satisfaction
This is a study on electronic information and information seeking behaviour of Marine science faculty. This study is based on empirical data collected through questionnaire and from an online survey conducted between January 2010 to March 2010 at south Indian Marine science departments and Libraries. The goal of this study is to investigate how this faculty uses the e-resources in our institutional resources and also studied need and satisfaction levels of various information sources and to obtain insights into informationseeking behaviour, especially its similarities and differences compared with the informationlocating patterns used by their marine science and fishery College Libraries.
