Library Resources vs. the Internet

College research combines library resources (which includes print and electronic resources available from the Library) and creditable sources found on the open Internet.

The difference between web resources found on general Internet (through Google or other search engines) and the Library's electronic resources found on its website, is that the Library pays to access specialized databases that make searching for information easier. Most of the Library's electronic resources will not be found through general web searching.
