Untangling the Web

Millions of Web pages are available to you, but how do you find the best ones for your research?

Many libraries review and organize Web pages. Starting with your library's home page (click on Subject Guides) will help you quickly locate quality sites. To find other information on the Web you will need to use a search engine.

When you use a search engine you are looking for terms that appear on pages in the search engine's database, rather than searching the Web in real time. Even the largest search engines only contain about 1/6 of the Web in their database, so if you only use your favorite search engine you will be missing out on over 85% of the available resources.
