Abstract

The study examines the effectiveness of the user education programmes offered by the main library of the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. Attitudes of users towards the user education programmes conducted by the Library and their suggestions for the user centric user education program are discussed. A user survey was conducted for the study and undergraduates of the Faculty of Arts were selected as the target group. Results of the study discovered that the available library user education programs are inadequate to increase the awareness of all available information resources and services offered by the library. Strengths and weaknesses of the existing user education programs were discovered and further improvements are also suggested.
