Sally A. Rogers, "Electronic Journal Usage at Ohio State University," College & Research Libraries 62, no. 1 (2001): 25-34.
E-journal, printed journal, and database usage data from campus polls conducted annually, 1998-2000, at one large research university show increased use of e-journals and decreased use of printed journals by faculty and graduate students as the number of available e-journals increased from two hundred to more than three thousand. Little or no statistical correlation between age and frequency of use was found. The majority of frequent users of all three types of resources were from departments in the sciences. Transcripts from the 1998 poll provided insights into attitudes toward replacing printed journals with e-journals. The advantages and disadvantages mentioned were consistent with previous studies.
