Gerontology: Web

An overview of gerontology resources available through the library.

Searching the Web

While the library has access to many high-quality scholarly resources, it does not provide access to all information that might be useful for your assignment. Sometimes what you need is only available on the open Internet. With seemingly infinite websites, it is necessary to use a search engine, such as Google, to locate what you are looking for. You are probably familiar with the Google search box, but there are tricks you can employ to conduct a more effective web search.
