About Googling

Most of us have used Google to find something in the past 72 hours and often in our googlized ways we believe we can find everything we need freely on the open web but much academic content is actually behind a pay-wall, it is not freely available, so libraries' buy access for library users in the form of print books, e-books, online database articles from journals and other periodicals--those resources can be accessed from libraries webpages.

But there are some freely available credible resources on the web if you know how and where to google it
