Abstract
Abstract: UGC: Infonet: E-Journals Consortium is the one amongst the foremost programmes launched by University Grants Commission (UGC), India for the free flow of scholarly information between the Indian universities. It is a new phase for the higher educational system of the country in which peer-reviewed literature from all across the world is being given to the academic and research community. The programme is fully funded by UGC and being monitored and executed by Information and Library Network (INFLIBNET) Centre. INFLIBNET has taken various steps to make exhaustive and comprehensive usage of provided e-resources, by the member universities. The Centre has also conducted various seminars, conferences, training and awareness programmes to make the end user aware about the benefits and use of e-resources in terms of information search, browse and download. In the sequence of various programmes, 5 national seminars were also conducted in different regions of the country. In these seminars a well-designed questionnaire was circulated, to know the awareness level of the users about the UGC-Infonet initiative. Through this paper an attempt is made to analyze the feedback given by the user and valuable suggestions and ambiguities are also observed
