Abstract: A five-question survey, randomly presented to users at Ohio State University (OSU) as they viewed articles in OhioLINK's Electronic Journal Center (EJC) in fall 2002, probed the user's status, academic unit, reason for viewing, path to the article, and frequency of EJC use. Usage by faculty and graduate students, frequent users, and by those in the sciences predominated, as did usage for a class assignment and browsing a journal's issues. OSU polls in 2003 and 2004 probed EJC awareness and actions after viewing articles. Half of undergraduates were non-users. Printing was favored over reading entire articles online.
