Acquisition of E-Journals in Libraries

The purpose of this paper is to bring the audience about the whole process of acquisition of e-journals including management issues and the problems associated with them. This is followed by various e-journals providers such as Academic Press IDEAL, ACS, IOP, RSC, CUP etc. The paper concludes that subscription to electronic formats is increasing day by day but due to their high cost, a substantial number of libraries are not able to do so. A possible remedy to reduce the subscription costs is consortia approach and minimum possible customization of number of journals, keeping in mind the requirement of subscribing library.
