Usage of e Journals in University of North Bengal under INFLIBNET (2012 2018) analysis with INFISTATS
INFLIBNET under its e-Shodhsindhu consortium scheme has introduced the users of University of North Bengal with the e-Journal facility. The e-journal facility provided under INFLIBNET has brought another opportunity for university libraries to serve their users with high-quality content. This change needs to be further evaluated to identify the actual usage picture. The paper identifies the trend in the use of e-journal facilities during 2012-2018 with the help of INFISTATS (usage statistics portal for e-Resource). This has determined the period of optimal use of e-journal, which shows the popularity of e-Journals in the university. It identifies the year in which the maximum and minimum use of e-Journals is found, and J-STOR & Science Direct has the maximum use percentage (55 percent). The study also found that seven e-Journals had the highest percentage of use (91 percent) indicating the extensive use of e-journal facilities by the user community of the University of North Bengal.
