The authors review changes in the standards for measuring electronic resources through an examination of the 1990-2000 IPEDS Academic Library Survey forms. During that decade, academic libraries have moved from counting electronic resources by the number of bibliographic and physical units to measuring usage. Local attempts to capture electronic resource usage are described.
