"The search mechanism is very easy to use, and as such, many different searches can be done in a relatively short time period.
As a result, a student (and researcher) will be able to conduct a broad review of current and past research in a particular area.
The timeliness of information is improved because publications can be made accessible before the paper copy is received in the mail.
In the past, one had to wait for the distribution of journals to gain access to them.
The online system means access to information anywhere and at any time.
This is critical for many researchers who are working at home, in the office, or perhaps even abroad."
