4. Which Web to Use?
Think of it this way, access to the public Web is like free broadcast T.V. Anyone can get to those channels. But the Library Web space is like premium cable. The Library buys premium Web databases for our students to use, like one pays for premium channels on cable TV.
GO with the strengths of the public Web
STOP and think! There are better places to look than the public Web
"But my professor said we can't use the Internet!"
If your professor has said that you can't use Web resources for your paper, you may wish to ask for clarification. Very possibly your professor will accept information on the "Library Web," much of which consists of online versions of materials the library once collected (or even continues to collect) in print form such as journals and reference works.
