Electronic journals are widely accepted by a large number of libraries. They prefer more and more e-journals with print versions. Almost all scholarly journal publishers are offering e-versions with their print versions either free of charge or with nominal extra charges. A third party mediator is coming up called aggregators that provide access to full-text journals from a range of different publishers. Libraries get more benefits such as reduction of journal expenditure cost, maintenance cost, providing extra services to the user community by agreement with the aggregator. This paper concentrates on basic characteristics, benefits, and a comparative study of facilities given by some popular aggregators
