|Abstract||Information Communication Technologies (ICT) have thrown forth new challenges before the library professionals. The technology has a great impact on the services of the libraries. In the present survey, an attempt has been made to explore usefulness of electronic resources and users skills in using various search methods and techniques to access and utilize e-resources in Indian Institutes of Technology Delhi, Kanpur and Roorkee, India. The study also aims to identify the level of satisfaction with the information accessed by users through the available e-resources. The study reveals that the majority of users are satisfied with availability of electronic resources that facilitates to support their academic, research and developmental activities. It has been observed that undergraduates in all the three institutes use blogs, social networking sites more than e-mail, whereas the post graduates prefer library websites and current e-journals over blogs, social sites and e-mail. Similarly research scholars prefer back volumes and current issued of e-journals, e-thesis.

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
