Full-Text e-Journals Increase by 4.7 Percent at the University Libraries

University Libraries now receive 10,272 full-text e-journals available 24/7/365 to support teaching, learning, and research at Ball State University. Many of these titles include substantial back-files. An analysis dated December 6, 2005 showed 9,774 titles. The addition of 458 titles represents a 4.7% growth in the e-journals collection.

The large increase in the number of electronic journals can be widely attributed to University Libraries’ recent acquisition of two additional JSTOR collections: Arts & Sciences IV and General Science.

The number of unique electronic titles will continue to show minor fluctuation because aggregated databases add and remove titles as part of their business operations.
