E-Research (Electronic Research) encompasses the use of information and communication technology to facilitate research. Such type of research makes use of internet-based tools and techniques. Internet-based research has made it possible for researchers to study topics that could not be researched, using traditional methods. It also allows researchers to gather information from a wide population at a lower cost; for example, by using online surveys, questionnaires, interviews, etc. . , however, e-research does have a few drawbacks. It would be difficult for researchers to verify or identity online participants of a study, and control the research environment as subject access, the internet-based research from various settings across the globe, collecting an unbiased sample that represents all segments of the population, but sometimes it would be difficult since everyone may not have access to the internet. E-Research has gained significant amount of attraction and it serves as the backbone for undertaking collaborative research. Computers and related electronic resources have come to play a central role in education. Electronic information sources are becoming more and more important and useful for the academic community. University academics are a unique population and rely on recent and timely information. Electronic resources are now used more often than print resources.
