Why the library?

When you search Google or other free search engines, you are only searching a small fraction of all of the information in existence.  There is much of the web that these search engines just cannot access.  Unlike these search engines, the library, through its online and physical collections, provides access to costly published materials, like books and articles that Google cannot provide access to, due to copyright restrictions. Published materials have gone through the expense and editing of the publishing process, which lends them a higher credibility (and expense). The college library specializes in providing you with free & efficient access to the expensive scholarly information that you need to use for academic research projects.
