“Ladies & Gentlemen,

Seem likes the world can’t live without the Internet anymore. Miller (2010) urged that the power of the internet is greatest than any others form of human communication in the past. I do agree with his statement, Internet provided many advantages to human being especially for the student like me. I can’t complete my assignment with the use of Internet and I need it badly when its come to outsourcing for my report. However, the creditable source always need to PAY and this make me very frustrated! Fortunately, I still have UOW library provide all the resolution.

The use of the Internet access for scholarly source may not consider new. Again, when it’s come to $$… It is a problem!! Davis (2011) had concluded “no strong evidence to prove that free sources online may causes crisis”. And, let me conclude Neylon (2013), whether the academic source is free or cost will both caused issues for the stakeholders. And, I believe many people will face the same problem about unavailable to access the journal unless you pay for it. Or, you are lucky enough like me, the university has provided you the free access.   This is not an easy task to resolve the problem. Hence, let’s wait how the expertise can solve this out.
