Using the Web for research

Websites can be used for research just like articles or books. While websites themselves are not scholarly sources, they can be used to find scholarly sources if you analyze them critically. Keep in mind that anyone can publish on the web, so it is your job as researcher and writer to evaluate and verify the information you find.
