The article presents the results of a comparative research study performed at the Faculty of Education, Palacký University Olomouc, which involved first grade students. The research was aimed at various types of information resources the students use during their study including their opinion about electronic study materials. We used a cluster analysis to investigate typical groups of students in the research sample according to their use of and approach to electronic study materials. A total of three groups of students were identified that have completely different approaches to using information resources. The article was a part of an project IGA_PdF_2015_009.

Keywords: university student, electronic study materials, traditional printed study materials, cluster analysis, comparative research.
