Search for a relevant database by Subject, type, or with the keyword.


At some point we use Google. Google is a great search engine, but … are all results authentic/reliable/scholarly?


  • Information in the Internet is not always evaluated for accuracy and/or reliability.
  • Anyone can publish their opinions or ideas on the internet.
  • Websites may not be reviewed or updated on a regular basis, meaning information may be stale or obsolete. 

However, Google Scholar helps to find relevant academic works across the web.
