When you use Google or other search engines to conduct research, you are searching a vast sea of information and casting your net widely. Your chances are good for finding information, but, in the process, you will have to cull through a lot of irrelevant or questionable sources. Much of the information in search engines, like Google, has not been reviewed for accuracy.

The library's databases offer access to a more focused array of information than the Internet. These databases have been reviewed and selected to provide reliable information from quality sources. Material is usually copyrighted and not available elsewhere.
