This study is a survey of the awareness and use of electronic journals by medical students of Delta State University and University of Benin in Nigeria. The population of the study comprises all the medical and clinical students of the two universities studied, which is 93. The entire population was used for the study because the population was small (41 in DELSU and 52 in UNIBEN). Data were generated using questionnaire and analyzed using frequency count and simple percentage. The findings reveal among various others, low level of awareness of e-journals and low computer literacy skills resulting in low level of usage of the e-journals among the medical students from both institutions. Based on the results of the findings, the study recommends among others that information literacy courses should be initiated compulsorily in course curriculum and libraries should be well equipped with internet facilities to encourage the use of electronic journals
