The library has great resources and is your starting point for research. The Internet, on the other hand, has value in the vast amount of information available, which differs from library materials. The Internet provides access to general and sometimes specific information, such as court proceedings, data/statistics, and news and commentary; however not everything you find online may be credible or trustworthy. The video and CRAAP test below are tools to help you determine whether you can trust a source.
