I'm interested in this discussion because it's not a pattern I am seeing with my own undergraduate students, who do prefer electronic resources over print ones, but tend to be accessing articles listed on the NT Gateway, or which are linked on my reading lists and course materials. This includes things like scholars' homepage reproductions (e.g. Fredriksen, Kloppenborg), but also repositories of on-line articles on given topics like The Paul Page -- I see increasing numbers of students finding sites like the latter their hunting grounds of choice. In other words, their thinking is less journal-based than it is author- and site- based.This fits the accessibility theme, such selected collections of links are both accessible and convenient. But the link collections that AKMA's students are accessing may not only be his own, other people's course materials and bibliographies (including webliographies) can easily be thrown up by a Google search.
