The e-journals available in University libraries of Andhra Pradesh are UGC-INFONET journals, open access journals and the journals subscribed by the libraries on their own. The present study is aimed to study the use of e-journals by the research scholars in the libraries of Sri Venkateswara University (SVU), Andhra University (AU) and University of Hyderabad (UH). It is intended to assess the type of e-journals used, purpose for which they are used, amount of time spent in using them, problems in accessing e-journals, search methods used in accessing them, satisfaction with print and e-journals, adequacy of e-journals and training obtained in accessing them.
