  •  Examine the impact of online journals in all health science libraries covered under ERMED. Analyze which journals have been accessed maximum in all medical libraries in India. Find out the list of journals which have not been accessed at all. Conduct a survey of all the health science libraries in India to gather data regarding the patrons & user’s satisfaction.
  •  Evidence shows that there is a shifting paradigm from print to online even in a developing country like India. Consortium like ERMED has enhanced the flow of health information and facilitated the access of scholarly publications at the campus. Finally it is important to note that the study was limited to a single library only while the Consortium covers 98 medical libraries.
