Abstract

This paper discusses the explosion in the use of electronic resources by students and the development of e-books. The existing high usage of e-resources will be intensified as virtual learning environments (VLEs) become the primary means of interaction between students and universities. The development of a bespoke subject collection of e-books for nursing students is explored in some detail, as is the demand for non-traditional resources for the VLE. The paper closes by discussing the opportunities for integrating resources into and exploiting VLEs.
