Evaluating Information: The Deep Web

Learn how to evaluate information sources

Did you know that only 4% of web content is searchable via Google? 96% of the content is hidden behind paywalls or accesible in corporate or goverment intranets. This is especially true of scholarly information (ex. peer-reviewed articles, dissertations, conference proceedings) - access is not free.  This is why using library subcription resources, like database, is key to getting good quality information.
