Nowadays, researching projects are very important fields of study in the world. There are two kinds of classification of resources according with their time periods; firstly there are the electronic resources known ase-resources that cover virtual information, this type of resources are quite recent because they have been developed during the last decades and the number of people using them has drastically increased during the last years. On the other hand there are traditional resources that cover physical information; the latter methodology has been used all over the world for hundreds of years since it was theonly mean to get information (Information from books, magazines, newspapers etc.). Most of the people are interested in doing researching projects around the world for different purposes; for this reason it is important to get information with these two types of resources and investigate how both methodologies contrast on investigation fields.

The Linguistic Seminary class is a subject for The English Major students and they use e-resources and traditional resources for their investigations; nevertheless, there are also different variables that arerequired in order to investigate why they choose to use one methodology over the other, for instance, how much time does it take to render homework, when they use one of these methodologies? Some students consider that to look for information on books can be tiresome and it takes too much time to type all the information on a computer, but some other students prefer to use e-resources such as...
