Abstract:   The advent of e-resources and their increased use have changed the library scenario from physical to virtual. Users’ preferences are more for e-resources and virtual libraries with little attraction for physical libraries. In spite of innumerable advantages of e-resources, there are certain problems also relating to their acquisition, maintenance, management, etc. which need collaborative efforts of professionals and all other bodies associated with creation, distribution and use of these resources to establish the sound practices and the models. The paper highlights these issues, emphasizing the need to develop or procure an ERMS which can integrate all these resources along with printed material to provide single window approach to all resources available locally as well as globally in a universal library.
