Abstract: The present study attempts to examine the strength of database collection in the university libraries in West Bengal. It is observed from this study that not all the university libraries in West Bengal possessed database collection yet. It is also seen that there was a significant relationship in availability of databases between the university libraries established before 21st century and university libraries established in 21st century in West Bengal.
