Librarians recommend that students use library resources, databases, and ejournals when searching for information.  However, many student will use Google to search for information on their topics.  While some of the resources found through a Google search may be credible and peer reviewed, some information can less so, out of date, and inaccurate.  When evaulating the information you find online use the "CRAAP" test!
