Purpose ‐ The paper aims to examine the change of University of Hong Kong Libraries from a mostly print collection to a mostly electronic collection. Design/methodology/approach ‐ The paper provides a description of the University of Hong Kong Libraries collection. Findings ‐ The paper finds that the change to a mostly electronic collection has been successful. It has brought new problems involved with keeping up with the technological issues. Both students and faculty are pleased with the new collection. Practical implications ‐ This change can make a large number of resources available to users at a reasonable price. There are, however, new jobs to do and new skills to learn. Originality/value ‐ This paper presents an excellent example of how a library can move to an electronic collection while continuing to provide quality services to its users.
