Purpose – Librarians need to educate users about online newspapers available in the library. The purpose of this paper is to survey the attitude of librarians towards online newspapers. Design/methodology/approach – A questionnaire on the various aspects of online newspaper usage was prepared and was circulated to librarians working in various parts of the country through e‐mail. Findings – It was found that librarians are making use of many features in the newspaper sites while offering library services. Research limitations/implications – Since the questionnaire was circulated online an interaction with the librarians was not possible. Partial responses were eliminated from the study. Social implications – Newspapers are a preferred source of information. Online newspapers from different parts of the world open a new window of knowledge to all. Librarians and administrators should engage in promoting online newspapers so that they will reach a wider array of users. Originality/value – The attitude of librarians in India towards online newspapers has not received much attention up to now; such a study would help various firms, library science educators and organizations to rethink their usage of online newspapers.
