Abstract: The study analyzed the information seeking behaviour of the faculties and students of Department of Pharmacy, Govt Girls Polytechnic, Raipur Chhattishgarh. In this study, data collected from 50 faculties and students by administering questionnaires on their information seeking and requirements of the Department of Pharmacy, indicates that guidance in the use of library resources and services is necessary to help faculties and students to meet their information requirements. Found that textbooks, journals, magazines and electronic information sources are the most popular sources of information for the students’ course work but students and faculties have been shown more affection to formal collection in libraries. The paper presents the various attitudes and behaviour in seeking information from polytechnic libraries by pharmacy users. Recommends that more latest edition of books and reference materials should add to the library collections.
