There are two different approaches to finding information for your research project on the Web:
There are benefits and drawbacks to using each approach, and they also share a lot of overlapping qualities.
The information you can find on the Web by using search engines and by typing a URL directly into your browser's address bar is information that is open to anyone who has access to the Web.
The Library's website is an ideal place to find information for your research because it was built with that purpose in mind! While anyone can browse through the website, only Edgewood students, faculty & staff have access to many paid scholarly resources.
There can be some overlap between the library's online resources and things that can be found openly on the Web. Here are a few examples:
Both the online resources offered by the Library and the open information available on the Web may be useful for your research. Some professors prefer students to use only Library resources, and some research projects require information that cannot be found at the Library. You may prefer to use both and decided for yourself which is the best approach.
No matter what your approach, a librarian will always be able to help you navigate online resources.
