         Subject: definition of online resource?

I was wondering if someone could assist me please?

I recently had a proposal for a research grant rejected by my
institution because (wait for it) my institution tells me that the
creation of an online resource (in this case a Website and a wiki)
involves no research. Yes, i found it hard to believe they were
serious too. Can anyone direct me to an official definition--MLA or
otherwise--of online resources writ large for use in my appeal?

With thanks,
