This paper’s purpose is to examine and discuss the awareness, benefits and challenges of e-learning among the faculty of Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra. In this study, survey method was adopted and questionnaire was used for data collection. The finding showed that awareness about information and communication technologies (ICT) or e-learning among the university students was good but e-learning software’s knowledge was very poor and respondent’s main source to know about e-learning was the internet. Many students thought that studying through e-learning was a good idea. The study also found that majority of students agreed to e-learning, as it provides an attractive learning environment and helps to acquire new ideas. Furthermore, the finding also revealed that majority of students thought that lack of familiarity to English language, lack of technology know-how, lack of financial resources and limited infrastructure were main problems in e-learning. On the basis of the findings, it can be said that librarians can play vital role in creating IT infrastructure for effective e-learning environment in universities.
