Digitalization can completely change the environment of education and inventions growth. Therefore, research scholars and users demand and needs are completely changed. Now, they demand all updated information related to all subjects and research without wasting any time. In past years, subjects and research areas were limited but now, there are no limits and boundaries. Therefore, their demand and need are completely correct. Time is so valuable and research scholars have time limitation. In the 21st century, education is characterized by digitalized, indexed online access to content.
