Engineering college libraries attempt to meet the need of a diverse and complex group of users, who have wide ranging interest and complex sets of demands.  Over the course of the last decade, very valuable resources of information have become available through the Internet and other electronic database, and libraries are currently playing role very different from that of before.  Periodical serials are the bedrock of research activities. Periodicals are best source for up-to-date information in a particular field.  They are publications which are issued at regular interval, such as journals, magazines and newspapers.  They are also often referred to as serials.  So researchers want to know the use, purpose and utilization of the periodicals by the users.
