Why Choose Library Information Over Web Resources?

Many students who are new to the college experience will ask the question, "Why can't I just use the web?" and "What's wrong with using Wikipedia?"  Well, it all boils down to accountability:  "That resource is fine and all, but did the author put their name to it?"  Next, think:  "What are the credentials of this person - what makes them credible and authentic?"  On the web, anyone can post their thoughts, but:  "Did they cite other writers to back themselves up?"  and "Just how can you be sure that this person quality-checked their hypothesis, experimental method, and conclusions before posting their work?"

Universities solve this accountability dillemma by aggregating, through subscription databases, the scholarly output of experts the world over.  Library databases bring to the reader articles of 10 to 20 pages that have been:  written by verifiably credentialed individuals; created with a list of References which cite other professionals in the field; and quality-checked by editorial boards through a peer-review process.  Of course, each database is somewhat unique, and many will contain trade periodical articles, popular magazine articles, and newspaper articles.  Some databases won't provide the credentials of the author, but their professional authority can be inferred by the journal publisher's reputation.
