I have recently been working on how to be an investigative journalist.
I started looking for sources in hard copy, or books, a word that is not uttered often enough in our culture.
I soon found that finding information by looking through books is much more time consuming and results in far less information than if you were to look up source information off the internet.
So, thus my search began.
I found that looking up article archives is pretty easy when you go to a newspapers Website and that you can just type in the information you want and then it comes back to you.
In a book, you have several pages and pages of information that are completely useless to the subject you are researching but you must prevail or else the grade will sting.
I am not a tech nut, but for a paper on investigative journalism the internet has proved quite helpful.
