The Bailey Library provides online access to credible articles and books through library databases. Using databases saves time and provides access to content that is not available freely on the web.
When using Google, you can increase your odds of finding credible resources by using a domain-specific search to pull information from specific domains such as .gov, .org, and .edu (but you'll still have to evaluate all information you find!).
