Abstract : The developments in information technology have made drastic changes in the way the information is collected, stored, retrieved, and distributed. Electronic journal is one of the products of information and communication technologies. The advancement of e-journal during recent years has given librarians a powerful new resource to support learning and research. With availability of both forms of journals in the library, it has become necessary to compare and evaluate effectiveness of e-journals and print journals from users’ and library’s’ point of view. The paper discusses a case study done at SP Jain Institute of Management and Research to find out the information-seeking patterns of the library users. The paper also discusses advantages and disadvantages of e-journals and suggests that printed and e-journals are complimentary to each other.
