Electronic resources are information in the electronic format whose creation, storage and dissemination depends on the use of computers and other electronic devices.

These resources come in two forms; online and offline. Online e-resources depend heavily on internet networks for their transmission and dissemination. Meanwhile, they provide vast range of information resources to users regardless of location, time or space.

On the other hand, offline e-resources do not need internet connectivity for their dissemination and access. These are soft copies of books and journal articles created or downloaded and stored on standalone computers. The RMU library holds over two thousand e-books and others. The library is a member of Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Ghana, known as CARLIGH, an umbrella body that negotiate and acquire licenses on behalf of institutions from publishers and aggregators of online databases. The RMU library renews these licenses every year while adding relevant databases from time to time. The library currently provides access to about 15 databases and over 2000 journal titles. These e-resources can be accessed in the library’s academic research room, however plans are far advanced to provide off campus access upon request.
