A web resource is anything that can be obtained from the World Wide Web.[1] Some examples are web pages, e-mail, information from databases, and web services.[2] Web resources have changed since the Internet was first created. The early concept was of static (non moving) files or documents. The meaning of the term now has a wider use to include nearly everything that can be obtained via the Internet. Uniform resource locators or URLs, are used to identify a resource on the web.[1]
