    Abstract

    Today Governments, R&D institutions and Universities invest substantial sums of money for providing scholars with the digital literature they need for their research work with the intention that improved access to electronic information resources will lead to increasing scholarly productivity. The transformation of the physical library to the virtual library probably saves time, since one can access publications from one’s desktop. The extent of publications available online combined with easier access has tremendously improved scholars’ ability to keep abreast in their field, and perhaps inspire new ideas and ultimately enhance the quality of their work. A research survey was conducted to study the Location of Articles from E-Journals by the Aerospace Scientists and Engineers of Bangalore.. The major conclusions of this study are: (a) E-Journal Online List: The chi-square test indicates that the ‘e-Journal Online List’ and the different types of aerospace organizations have no significant association (Chi-Square=15.57, P = 0.411). (b) Directly from Publisher’s Web-Site: The chi-square test indicates that ‘Directly from Publisher’s Website’ and the different types of aerospace organizations have no significant association (Chi-Square=16.16, P = 0.371). (c) Subject List Located on the Publisher’s Web-Site: The chi-square test indicates that ‘Subject List Located on the Publisher’s Website’ and the different types of aerospace organizations have significant association (Chi-Square=31.09, P = 0.009). (d) Access / Link Provided at the Scientists Desktop through the Organization’s Intranet: The chi-square test indicates that ‘Access / Link Provided at your Desktop through your Organization’s Intranet’ and the different types of aerospace organizations have significant association (Chi-Square=44.80, P = 0.000), (e) Alphabetical List Located on Publisher’s Web-Site: The chi-square test indicates that ‘Alphabetical List Located on the Publisher’s Website’ and the different types of aerospace organizations have no significant association (Chi-Square=19.87, P = 0.177), (f) From A Database: The chi-square test indicates that ‘From a Database’ and the different types of aerospace organizations have no significant association (Chi-Square=18.49, P = 0.248), (g) Personal Bookmark: The chi-square test indicates that ‘Personal Bookmark’ and the different types of aerospace organizations have no significant association (Chi-Square=21.58, P = 0.119).
