Abstract: This paper presents the results of a study of bibliographies compiled from theses submitted in the period 2001–2005. The bibliographies have been studied to find out how research carried out at PRL is being used by the doctoral students. Resources are categorized by type of resource — book, journal article, proceedings, doctoral thesis, etc., to understand the usage of content procured by the library. The period of the study, 2001–2005, has been chosen because technology is changing so fast and so are the formats of scholarly communications. For the sake of convenience, only the “e-journals period” is considered for the sample.
