Research and the Internet
Anyone can create a website, therefore not everything that is posted on the internet is true.
Wikipedia is a popular website for information, but anyone can edit the information on this website, which decreases its credibility. However, you can browse the bibliography at the bottom of the webpage to locate credible references.
The library is a great place to find credible references and can be accessed from the internet. There is even a librarian that will be happy to assist you via the internet or phone. Please visit the Kodiak College library website to learn more.
