Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? It is better to use printed materials such as books and articles to do research than it is to use the internet. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

No one can deny that there are positive and negative aspects to using both the internet and books to conduct research. If I were forced to choose, I would select internet for execute a survey. It is my firm to believe that internet is a best source for search than printed materials for a number of reasons, and I will develop these ideas in the subsequent paragraphs. To begin with, the internet has unlimited websites and scientific papers available for anyone consult, almost for free. Everybody with a connection can access a lot of information about any subject quickly. However, when you use printed materials, you will necessarily need to go a library or at home to access this material, and you will have to flip page by page to find what you are looking for. I have to admit that my opinion on this matter has been profoundly influenced by my own personal experience. Nowadays, I am graduating in biological sciences, so I am constantly researching something for complete my homework. Besides that, for be able to discuss in a group of studies about zoology I need consult a lot of information. As a result, I can't waste much time once I have many things to do in the week, so using the internet I certainly save a lot of time. If I had to do all this researching using a book, I would not fulfill my commitments. Secondly, to use the internet is only necessary a smartphone or a laptop or a computer, and most people have at least one these. On the other hand, if you want to use a book to search something, you will probably need more than one to find everything that you need. Drawing from my own experience, when I was young and need to study by books, I carried a lot of them for anyplace I went, and it was heavy. However, nowadays I can take only my smartphone or laptop and accesses everything that I need, and the best part of this is that I carry almost no weight. It's certainly clear to see why I prefer use internet do study and do my research than printed materials. In light of the above mentioned reasons, I strongly believe that use printed material is worse than the internet for to do searches.
