Abstrakt: The paper will examine the factors influencing the use of electronic research information in the so-called countries in transition – mainly in Estonia, but also in other Eastern and Central European countries.

The use of electronic research information is favoured by the accessibility of information and communication technologies, the most important factor being the number of computers and Internet connections.

A crucial factor in purchasing electronic research databases is the existence of interlibrary consortia – the experience and skill in different forms of co-operation furthered by such institutions. Stable supporting of libraries by the state, budgeting and other support mechanisms guarantee the success of libraries in making electronic research materials accessible.

Explosive growth in the volume of information has laid stress on the importance of information literacy and drawn attention to the need of training the users of databases, as well as the librarians, who make these materials available.

In the user comparison made in the presentation, the author has applied the user statistics of EBSCO database, purchased to a number of transition countries via the eIFL project with the support of OSI in recent years.
