Abstract : The study attempts to find out the usage of e-resources of various publishers available under UGCINFONET by the academic community of Manipur University during 2007 and 2008. The study reveals that while there is an increase in the usage of the resources of most of the publishers in spite of certain problems of accessibility, resources of some of the publishers were underutilised. Though the study does not investigate the usage of individual journal covered by each publisher, yet an average of downloads of each publisher based upon the coverage has been worked out and presented. The study suggests that there is a need to find out usage of individual product of the publisher in view of the findings that the larger the coverage least is the use.
