Making the right use of online sources
Resources in general
What is an online resource? Or what is a resource? A resource is something that is a source of support that can be made available readily whenever it is required. This definition is quite general. It is for resources in general but the kinds of resources we are referring to here are resources that are used as academic aids. These Kinds of resources are fairly common and are used by millions worldwide and they benefit a lot of people especially those in the academia world who are looking for that extra help to get them better at their education or even excel at it.
Evolution of resource usage
Academic resources have been around for way too long. Scholars and researchers always put up their works in archives to be accessed by everyone and that’s their great contribution to this world as they put up their lives work for everyone to look at and use for further help and that’s practically how libraries started. People deposit their work such as articles, books and academic papers and others can access them and use them for their benefit or to further carry on the research conducted in that paper either by supporting it or proving it wrong but anyways all of this is a great way to share knowledge with each other and it has been and always will be the greatest asset of humanity. Even though the process remains the same, there have been developments in this landscape in terms of accessibility. First people had to physically go and get what they wanted from the library and usually were required to have a membership that would cost a fortune but now that has changed with advancements in technology. Now all that still happens the same way but now it is online; the exact same infrastructure but digital, how cool is that? One such library today is a Library of Essays.
Benefits of online libraries
Physical libraries; still exist and are still used to a wide extend but all of them have moved online too to keep their popularity up. There are several benefits and all are in terms of accessibility as the content of these archives remains the same. A major benefit of having online access is that they can be accessed off-site, so that you do not have to visit it to get something and can only login and access it anywhere. This also helps in terms of sharing knowledge globally. A paper or a book written in one end of the world can now be read and sold in another of end of the world through these online libraries and can benefit people and writers as their outreach has increased greatly causing them to make more money and get exposed to a different kind of literature experience which can be really beneficial as it helps you avoid saturation of knowledge by staying at one place all the time.
