Why use Web Resources?

Websites provide up-to-the minute news and information about current events, trends, and controversial topics.  They may also contain government publications such as reports, statistics, legislation and service information; interviews, newspaper articles; research reports; conference/workshop/symposium papers; maps and other types of resources.  

Finding Good Web Resources

Use these good search habits to find high quality, authoritative sources on the internet:

1)  Limit your Google Search by domain -- add site:. before a domain, such as .gov or .edu. 

2) Use Google Scholar, instead of the regular Google search box to find for scholarly articles

3) Let the Google Scholar citation help you find related articles, create a citation or get the full text from the library

Green Engineering Web Sites
