Introduction:

In a learning environment, information plays an important and essential role in understanding any

academic matter. Students need information in order to learn their lesson, and as for the teachers to give

learnings to their students. In the past years, library have been one of the most effective tool for searching

an information and is well known for its traditional way of sourcing using books, journals, dictionaries and

etc. Although library is said to be time consuming than using internet , there ’s still a lot of people who are

engaged in reading books knowing its safer side .

According to the study of Lippincott J. Library has become part of the campus life in the University

of Southern California’s Leavey Library that leaves a remarkable record with 1.4 million students who

visited the ir library. This shows how the traditional way of sourcing an information is being vital in giving

access and reliable resources in school purposes such as writing papers, assignments, activities, and research

papers. As Prince J. (2014) states that, Library collection is one of the legitimate source of information

because it is developed and maintained by the professionals and is said to be more reliable and higher

quality than online. Libraries have been adjusting their collections, services, and environments to the digital

world for at least 20 years. Even prior to ubiquitous use of the Internet, libraries were using technology for

access to scholarly databases, for circulation systems, and for online catalogs. However, internet replaced

and became the substitution of library as the new source of information.

In the modern world, internet have become very useful, specifically in the educational environment .

Internet was known for its good, easy and convenient access whether it is communication or learning

purposes. According to Almario R. (2015). Since people are now living in a much more modern world, and

time flies so fast, people don’t have time to read book so they preferred internet. The most common one is

students' dependence on Google or similar search engines for discovery of information resources rather

than consultation of library Web pages, catalogs, and databases as the main source of access. Mobile phones

and computers are also part of the students’ everyday lives, a tool which can access information using

internet in a quick and simplest way. In accordance with Essays, UK (2018), Internet is very easy to access

and at the same time saves time thereby allowing an individual to manager his/her resources better and

effectively. Additionally,

the Internet is very convenient because an individual

can easily carry out a

research work at home with much comfort and convenience. The reason why internet is very popular than

libraries.

According to Whitmyre (2017), internet resources are more efficient than print resources. It allows

the students to gather information using different techniques and formats, such as videos and audio

recordings that may not be present in the library. However, there are also disadvantages of having internet

as a source of information. As stated in the Tennessee State University (2001), Internet doesn’t have quality

control nor

organizer. Open source information on the internet is quite common and easy to get misinformed

information. Anyone with access to the internet can publish a site where some informations are incorrect.

Internet is not organized. There is no system that catalogs and organizes all resources in the internet.

Searching is only part of the internet and searches is not always relevant to your topic that leads to a waste

of time and confusion

Libraries and digital information resources c an play a critical role in the education of today's

students. The library can play a critical role in learning directly related to courses, such as writing a paper,

and processes related to lifelong learning. Libraries can provide collections, organized information, systems

that promote access, and in-person and virtual assistance to encourage students to pursue their education

beyond the classroom. And as well as the internet, internet can also play a critical role in emphasizing

access to information

The study aims to show the credibility of both internet and library of a way to get an information.

It will also give the teacher an idea of what source of information is the most effective in most cases such

as: which is most effective when time is crucial, which is the most reliable source of information, etc

It

will also provide enough information on which source of information, library and internet, ha s the most

data to provide a sufficient knowledge for a student.

Statement of the Problem:

Is the internet is the preferred source of information? Or is it the library? This research will

determine which is the preferred source of information and will aim to answer this problems:

1. What are the positive and negative effects of using internet and library as a primary source of

information?

2. What is the most effective way to use in searching information?

3. Which is more accurate and prefer to use as a sourc e of information?

4. How does internet and library help the student to gain information or data in doing school works?

5. How accessible and reliable is the library compared to an internet? Vice -versa

Scope and Delimitation

The researchers focused on how the STEM students prefer in gathering information. This academic

work targets to know the advantages and disadvantages of library and internet in their learning system. The

period of the study started from August 19th 2019 to September 2019. The respondents will be the Grade

12 students of Science Technology Engineering Mathematics of La Consolacion University Philippines.

The chosen respondents of this research sums up with the total locality of 100 students.

La Consolacion Library plays a significant role in the delivery of information to the University. It

has computer database therefore they provide an extensive scope of study materials such as books, journals,

magazines, newspapers and etc. Internet access is free and can be used by any students.

Significance of the Studies:

This study used to bear services of the information between the use of internet as a source of

information. It is expected to help enhancing the knowledge of Grade 12 Senior High School students of

La Consolacion University of the Philippines. Hence, it helps the students to collect data's needed in the

study/ies.

Benefiting the study are the various sectors as follows:

The students

It will help the students to collect information that is more reliable and accurate for their school stuffs

Also it will help the students to be aware and careful in sourcing some information in the internet and to

determine the importance of library as a source of information.

The teachers

It will help the teachers to have a good foundation to teach students reliably and accurately. It will also

help the teacher to be careful in collecting resources that is to be presented to the ir students.

The future researchers

It will help the next researcher s to have a prior knowledge in understanding and determining good

preferences in terms of sourcing an information. Also it will serve as the basis of their related study.
