Consortium for coordinated acquisition of Serbian research libraries KoBSON was established in 2001 as a result of a contract between six main research libraries. Ministry for science provides the financial resources and the National Library of Serbia negotiates the contracts with providers of scientific information. Members of the Consortium organized education of librarians and users at university libraries, all state faculties and institutes all over Serbia. Consortium KoBSON started with access to about 3.000 journals in 2002, and every year the number was growing, according to wishes of the academic community and available resources. At present academic institutions in Serbia have access to 17.000 e-journals. The most used services are Science Direct, Springer and Ebsco. Data about the usage show steady growth. Precise available data show that the number of downloaded articles grew from about 610,000 in 2004 to more than 820,000 in 2006. Availability of world current scientific journals had the important impact on Serbian authors. Between 2001 and 2006 the number of publications by Serbian authors in journals included in the database Web of Science doubled, showing that there is correlation between the availability of current scientific resources and their presence in the Web of science.
