The study looked at the benefits and drawbacks of having access to and using online resources. It also looked at their availability, how often they are used, how to get to them, and how easy it is to use different kinds of ORs type sequences. With the study's goals in mind, questionnaires were made so that quantitative research could be done. The respondents who took part were graduate students from universities in Punjab that offer advanced degrees in research. The information was given in numbers and on different scales, such as nominal, ordinal, interval, and ration. The results showed that research students have different levels of access to online resources like the HEC library and databases of journals and magazines. Students who do research often use electronic books, articles from journals and magazines, and the HEC library. Master of Science and Master of Philosophy students use blogs and wikis in particular to do research and study. The vast majority of research students who took part in this study also said they were unhappy with the digital materials that are currently available. For their studies and research, they needed materials that were easier to get to. The main benefits of using online resources are quick access, access to a wide range of information, up-to-date information, and a choice of how to view the information. The main problems with getting to and using online informant resources are power outages (called "load shedding"), slow or no internet connections, and a lack of computers in institutes and libraries. In light of these results, suggestions were made for what could be done.
