Information technology encourages the rapid growth of information, especially electronic information. The growth of this information significantly influences the growth and development of higher education library collections. The general phenomenon shows the tendency of higher education library users to use electronic information resources and this is predicted to be higher than the use of printed resources. This tendency needs to be further investigated, because it does not apply to all types of collections. This study aims to reveal the tendency of students to use information resources at the USU Library. The results of this study are expected to be beneficial for the policy of developing college library collections, providing facilities and improving services to users in this digital era. The method used in this study is a survey method and questionnaire used to collect data. Samples are determined using Taro Yamane formula. The number of samples is 392 with details of 224 students from the exact study program and 168 students from non-exact study program. Analysis data. Data processing uses SPSS version 17 application program. Data analysis uses chi-square statistics. The majority of students tend to use electronic information resources more than printed information resources; but for textbook types, they are more likely to use printed books than e-books. There’s a tendency for students in the exact sciences study program to use electronic information resources more frequently than non-exact sciences study program students. The majority of students stated that it was easier to find the electronic information resources, but it was more convenient to read printed information resources. The concept of hybrid library is very appropriate to be implemented in building and developing college library services. Diversification of library service is required in the development of university library
