Purpose: “Survival is the fittest”, being as an organism modern day library has to fight for the changes to survive with the latest technological advancements. To cope with the day to day challenges, college libraries have to categorize and extend its own best practices to enhance the library usage, services and dissemination of information. While planning any best practices for future strategies should follow specific planning, analysis for user base objectives and institutional goal. Library practitioners must take active participation for creative and problem solving attitude. A regular analysis of library best practices leads to the continuous development in performance of the library and institution as a whole.
Methodology: Survey method with the help of structured questionnaire has been applied in this study along personal observation to conduct this study. The colleges assessed and accredited by NAAC are well equipped and implemented library best practices therefore this study covers 13 numbers of colleges out of 24 degree colleges in three districts of Barak valley affiliated to Assam University, Silchar.
Findings: As the study population has assessed and accredited by NAAC therefore the selected colleges fulfilling minimum benchmark of NAAC best practices which can be extended to achieve higher academic performances and quality of library services. The study suggests some extended parameters after reviewing related literatures to meet user requirements.
Originality: This is an original research works conducted by the researcher based on the data collected thorough scheduled questionnaire distributed to the librarian of colleges affiliated to Assam University, Silchar.
