Increasingly Electronic Libraries

January-February 2007

From 1998 through 2005, University library holdings increased by 1.62 million volumes—11.6 percent. But during the same period, the number of "e-resources" grew tenfold, and now include more than 15,000 on-line journal titles. Researchers are accessing these holdings ever more frequently, with individual uses of e-resources rising to nearly 5.2 million in 2005 alone.
