This paper describes how the Warsaw University Of Technology Library manages the access to electronic resources, that is organizing and developing search tools that allow users to get an authorised online information quickly and efficiently. We present here such tools as:

  • A-Z list of e-journals

  • A-Z list of e-books

  • E – databases ( an interactive table)

  • Digital Library of Warsaw University of Technology

  • Analysis and statistics tools (Aleph, HAN, deLibra)

At the end of this paper we are going to present our trend and plans.
