Abstract: The major purpose of this study was to examine the perceptions of undergraduate students towards the digital library of the Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT), Cochin, India. Specifically, the study made an effort to determine the sources consulted and the general pattern of information gathering by the students. The study adopted a descriptive survey design and data was collected using a questionnaire administered to 225 respondents randomly selected from seven branches of engineering faculty in the CUSAT. The results obtained show that almost all students use the digital library for learning. They frequently access the digital library for getting previous exam question papers, syllabi and other materials pertaining to their study. They are satisfied with current digital library features and functionality. Students recommended the addition of more documents related to their courses and useful links to the digital library.
