Updating the list of e-resources

This week and the next I'm in Rwanda working with UR library staff to verify that the list of e-resources is updated. This is the list of INASP resources which you find at the UR website / Resources / Electronic resources.
We have removed the e-resources where the subscription has been discontinued and we have added the e-resources which are new for 2016.
