Discusses the transition from printed to electronic journals and presents a number of factors which may deter users from moving to electronic journals. Raises the question of cost from both a user’s and a librarian’s point of view and the question of subsidies. Points out a number of technical problems which may be encountered and suggests that the transition will take considerable time and effort.
