You're probably used to using Google to look for information. However, to do research, your instructors will expect you to go beyond Google and use the library web. Why? What's the big deal?
Library web sources are carefully reviewed and selected by librarians based on their reliability, relevance to your studies, and value to academic research.
Librarians organize library web sources to help you easily decide which databases and journals you need for your research.

Information retrieved by Google does not go through a review process. Anyone can publish on the web.
World Wide Web resources are not organized. There are too many pages for any search engine, like Google, to organize by subject matter.
Use Google or another search engine:
