Abstract

 

In this information age, libraries are now coming to be known more as Knowledge resource centers or Digital information centers. Gone are the days where Library meant only rows and rows of books now it means an Information center with access to different media available. The hardcopy books are being complimented with e-Journals and e-Books which are now being implemented at most libraries in UAE and across the globe. This study examines the need and necessity of electronic collections at University libraries and its impact on Management graduates. It also identifies the level of awareness among the graduates and their usage pattern on using digital information.

 

Key words: E-journals, e-books, digital products, e-learning initiatives and management studies.
