The article evaluates the impact of e-journals on book loans of local academic libraries holdings in Germany. Due to a decreasing demand of printed journals and books, an increase in the demand of e-journals occurred and had negative effects on local library holdings in Germany. Other topics mentioned are the rise of interlibrary loan requests and therefore higher costs and waiting times for users, limited access to e-journals due to copyrights, and a lack of government aid.
