Electronic resources are need of the hour in this digital age. Academic libraries provide access to a number of online journals, e-books and online databases either by directly subscribing to them or through consortia. Effective usage of electronic resources by the library users depends on the awareness of the availability of them in their libraries and literacy on how to use them in conducting a literature search. This paper highlights the steps taken by the library in promoting the usage of electronic resources. Excellent computer infrastructure, development of library web page with links to access various electronic resources, providing access to electronic resouces through Wi-Fi, providing remote login access to e-resources, installation of e-resources management search solution software (ERMSS), placement of display boards in the reading halls having details of databases subscribed by the library, conducting information literacy programs to the library users, providing literature search services are some of the means by which Health Sciences Library of Manipal University, Manipal is promoting the effective use of electronic resources subscribed by the library.
