English abstract

The electronic information sources have become an integral part of the library services and they have a crucial role to play in the higher education. Undergraduate students depend their studies on electronic sources. However, electronic information sources cannot be used effectively without the necessary training by the library. The right instruction should be given to students on how each electronic source should be used. The evaluation of the information electronic sources though a survey on the students´ opinion is of equal importance. The survey can help the library to find the real educational needs of the students as regards the electronic sources, to discover any possible weaknesses in the whole process and to improve its electronic services.
