This paper considers students' attitudes towards e-reading. The author presents the results of a study conducted from 2003 to 2012 among students at Nicolaus Copernicus University that examined students' attitudes towards electronic resources. The study utilized the results of other researchers. The results of the study indicate that despite the increasing availability of electronic publications on the Polish market, they are not becoming more popular among students, at least not among those
more » ... not among those students that comprised the researched group. This is undoubtedly connected with the respondents' modest reading needs, which are being insufficiently developed at Polish schools. After the reforms of 1999, Polish education has focused solely on test-driven examinations of students' knowledge and abilities. The results of the research presented in this paper unambiguously indicate that interest in online magazines, as well as digital libraries in which the holdings are becoming more and more extensive, is decreasing.
