Library Resources vs. Google

You want to use library resources for your Spanish papers because:

  1. People who are writing about language and literature tend to publish in books, encyclopedias, scholarly journals -- most of which aren't available for free on the web.
  2. Articles in scholarly journals have been edited and vetted by peers in the field.
  3. Articles in encyclopedias can provide good basic information, the most accepted thought on a subject, and lists of bibliographies.
  4. Images from the web might have been altered or be of poor quality or unknown origin.
  5. Using library resources is fun and easy -- try it!
