These websites have been chosen by your subject librarian to provide you with a relevant selection of online resources. When searching for other online resources evaluate them and think critically about the information presented;

  • Who is making the content available, are they a reliable source?
  • Is the content they are presenting accurate?
  • Is it biased towards political or commercial interests?

Our evaluating the credibility of websites guide will help you with this process. Get in touch with a librarian or one of our Learning Advisors if you are unsure.

 

google scholar

 

 


Google Scholar allows you to search for academic sources using Google's search capabilities. This excludes other non-academic material to give you a more scholarly selection of results. EIT's holdings can be displayed using Google Scholar, to allow you to see at a glance if EIT has access to the full-text of sources you may find. See our guide for step by step instructions.
