Modern libraries are increasingly being redefined as places to get unrestricted access to information in many formats and from many sources. They are extending services beyond the physical walls of a building, by providing material accessible by electronic means, and by providing the assistance of librarians in navigating and analyzing very large amounts of information with a variety of digital resources. Libraries are increasingly becoming community hubs where programs are delivered and people engage in lifelong learning. The aim of this study was to investigate the information use pattern of library by faculty members of Annapoorana Engineering College at Salem. Specifically, five purposes and research questions guided the study. It adopted a descriptive survey design and had a population of 80. From the above population questionnaire were distributed with all (80) and 75 questionnaires were returned; representing a return rate of 94%. The data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics of frequency tables and percentage method and to arrive at conclusion.
