    Augustine: a survey. This finding was supported by research undertaken by Nicholas [ 12 ] and Vander Meer, Poole, and Van Valey [ 8 ], who pointed out that use studies tend to say little of nonusers of resources. In the absence of any data about student and faculty use of information resources provided by entities other than the library, what does a decline in circulation really mean in terms of supporting education and research? Libraries are operating with fewer volumes per student than in the past, but there is no context in which to determine if this is good or bad. Libraries need to explore alternatives and conduct more cost analyses like the journal study at Wellesley College to compare the cost-effectiveness of subscribing to a title with the cost of purchasing articles from that journal on an as-needed basis. It is hoped that this research adds to the body of literature about use of e-resources pertaining to the Caribbean, as well as encourages further studies of this nature for different user groups.

In the absence of digital user certificates, libraries provide proxy servers for remote access to restricted electronic resources and services, but this technology is problematic, high maintenance, and may be circumvented by pre-packaging course materials. Similarly, usage data from commercial vendors of electronic resources cannot be compared easily because they measure or define the data differently.
