This paper provides an in-depth analysis of user perceptions towards resource utilization in central university libraries in Uttar Pradesh, India. Surveying 600 Postgraduate students and Research Scholars, the study uncovers key factors motivating library use, prominent resources, and challenges faced by users. Digital resources emerged as the most utilized, with user training and resource availability cited as areas needing improvement. Adopting a dual-method research approach, the study underscores the pivotal role of guides and teachers in influencing library use while revealing differences in resource utilization between the two user groups. The findings bear significant implications for enhancing library services, guiding policy formulation, and advocating for user-centric strategies.
