English abstract

In this short article we examine the use of electronic journals by research scholar and consider whether library services need any innovation. Research scholars are the intellectual asset of the University and their production of new knowledge through the practices of research and scholarship lies at the heart of the University’s mission. Yet, without effective and ongoing dissemination of knowledge, the efforts of researchers and scholars are wasted. Dissemination is thus a core responsibility of the University.
