More about the World Wide Web . . .

The Web can be a good research source for:
  • learning more about companies and organizations
  • information from the U.S. government
  • finding quick facts
  • catching up with current news
  • gathering opinions of people
  • And connecting to library resources
The bottom line is: the Web can be a useful tool for finding certain kinds of information (if you are very
specific & really know how to use a web search engine effectively!) but it is usually not the best place to begin your academic research.
