Searching Google

Please try some of the library resources first.  That said, Google can also have some valuable information too.  Just remember, not all sites on Google are the same in terms of information quality.  Therefore, keep the following questions in mind when searching Google...

  • Is the author a knowledgeable expert on my topic?
  • Was research done to support the article?  Or does the author bring up points anyone could just make up?
  • Is the article biased in some way or possibly owned by one of the media companies in question?
  • And is the article still current?
