Abstract: Library and Information Services of Higher Education institutions play a vital role in attractive the quality of academic and research environment. The National Accreditation and Assessment Council (NAAC) struggle for quality and excellence in higher education and advocates for attractive the function of Library and Information Services in improving academic environment. Though, it is institutional accreditation that the NAAC does, the assessment of a library, a vital sub-unit, is a key step that integrates itself with the taken as a whole assessment. Library is the fulcrum of support for the entire range of academic activities on an educational campus. In today’s high-tech culture environment, the library as a culture resource is taking up increasingly more academic freedom and time in the life of a learner.[IX] Thus the current research paper is an empirical analysis to access the “impact of NAAC on overall development of libraries in higher education institutionsin Rajasthan.” The descriptive and exploratory study was conducted in twenty Higher Educational Institutes of Rajasthan, India accredited by NAAC through a questionnaire based online survey done by Google Docs. Results postulated that higher NAAC Grades are significantly inter correlated with – Library Building; Library Automation, Library Information Services; Library Subscribed e- resources and with the Library as a member of E- Shodh Sindhu. The result reveals that higher significant scores have high impact on NAAC grading and are highly correlated with NAAC grading of educational institutes which statistically concludes in acceptance of Alternate Hypothesis H1 : There is a significant impact of NAAC on overall development of Libraries in Higher Education Institutions in Rajasthan. Finally the paper concludes that even with incomplete budget, the library may look at ways, such as unlock access sources to present quality resources in the most resourceful manner possible which can be highly beneficial for HEI’s in accrediting with higher NAAC grades.
