When to use databases:
- When you need scholarly journal articles, magazine articles, newspaper
articles and information not indexed or available on the Web.
- When you are in a hurry;
- Databases contain credible information at one access point so you don't
have to sift through numerous Web sites and try to evaluate their credibility.
- When you are looking for biographies, statistics, or encyclopedia entries.
When to use the Internet:
- When you are willing to evaluate the content of Web sites.
- When you want to visit a specific Web site.
- When you want to access digital collections, government information, commercial sites, advertisements, or today's news.
- When you want to find information on organizations or groups, or personal Web pages related
to a topic.
