Searching the Internet for web resources can be a daunting task! You may be faced with huge numbers of search results to sift through or you may find a site you want to use but are uncertain if it is valid or reputable. To help with this issue, the library has created an online database of high quality web sites and materials; a searchable collection of academic and educational web sites that have been recommended by the college’s librarians, faculty and staff. This growing collection of over 1,500 items includes descriptions and web links to connect you to authoritative web sites published by colleges, universities, research centers, government agencies, professional associations and other groups. Many of these web sites have been gathered from the college’s Area of Study pages and for online course resources.
