Doing reseach via Internet Score: 4 July 23rd, 2017 by a

Some people may hold the opinion that doing research by books is the best. However, in my opinion, I agree with the point of view that surveying on the web in more convenient than at library. My arguments for this stance are listed as follows.
First of all, you can get the information from the Internet anytime and wherever you are as long as you have the computers.
To give an example, my house is a little bit far from the closest library and it takes about 30 minutes on foot. Then, sometimes especially in rainy day it is bother for me to go there to study. In addition, it is closed on every Sunday and after 6:00 PM. Also, because of this business hours I can visit there only on Saturday because I come back home on 7:00 in week days. This experience shows that my states are preferable.
In addition, the number of reliable web site is increasing day by day. For instance, there are a lot of services we can look for papers and my university pay for some of them. Also, our students are able to read papers which have been already published at conference and to make a copy. Certainly, this information which are gotten on the internet are credible. Though it is prohibited to write thesis by referencing web information, but it seems this way of using the Internet is widely accepted. As this example illustrate, I strongly believe that using the computers to study is the best.
Furthermore, the number of books at the library is limited.
Specifically, sometimes the readings that I’ve found have not been there, and I’ve ordered librarians to get them from other places. However, it has taken one or two weeks usually and it would impossible for most of researchers to wait such a long time. This experience also indicates that my idea is superior to the opposite.
In conclusion, I think that to survey on the internet is more convenient than by the articles. That is because we can use the internet anytime and anywhere and the information on the web site is getting more reliable now.
