From the results of a literature search, 26 scientific articles were found that were published between 2016-2021 and. Of these, 17 journal articles and 1 proceeding article were selected that were relevant to the research focus.
Results: The results show that the library has empowered various electronic resources that can be accessed openly (open access). However, this increase also demands an accelerated digitization and ease of access to library services. The increase in the use of electronic resources occurs because there is a need and a major change in the behavior and attitudes of users in finding and using information.
