Volume 9 No.1 January-March 2019 pp 58-61
The present study discusses the attitude of information seeking behavior among the scientists of Defence Avionics Research Establishment. The study describes about the scientists those who are involved in the research of Airborne Electronic Warfare, Airborne Processors and Testing & Evaluation of Electronic Warfare (EW) systems and their persuasiveness towards electronic information resources, level of satisfaction, and barriers in all aspects of using electronic resources. For the purpose of the study seventy two scientists listed category–wise were determined as the sample through purposive sampling technique. The primary data were collected through questionnaire survey and thus collected data were analyzed using statistical tools.
