The quality of electronic information resources does not correspond to number of actual user accesses from libraries and other institutions that offer these resources. The paper analyses causes of this situation and shows possible solution in the field of economics (and related fields). At the University of Economics the solution is represented by the virtual economic library called Econlib (http://www.econlib.cz). The aim of Econlib is to ease the access to electronic information resources at most for pedagogues and R&D staff as well as expert public. The authors use concrete examples from Econlib to demonstrate how to deal with the problem of the information resources and services marketing. The paper also contains experience from one year when Econlib is in operation.
