Abstract: Institutional Repositories (IR) provide facilities to the faculty, researchers and administrators who need to archive and share their research articles and historical and creative materials. Access to information through electronic media is required by libraries and user communities and therefore, almost all the libraries in universities have developed IRs as a strategy of IT application in library services. Archival Collection service is important to any academic library. The aim of this study is to identify how electronic information resources are developed by academic library users and press trends that can be seen among faculties and students. The study also examines the use pattern, acceptance, perceived importance and satisfaction on electronic resources over print resources.
