    12. 12. Google Scholar ONU buys Full-text database OhioLINK Permits Google to link to full-text Google asks to link to content ONU user sees licensed full-text articles Run Google Scholar Search Note: If working off campus please see the “Google scholar” tab at the Research Guide for BIOL 3241 Internet Tools
    13. 13. Critically analyzing web sources What? is the page/site about Who? created and maintains this site Where? Is the information coming from Why? Is the information presented on the web When? Was the page created or last updated How? Accurate or credible is the page From the University of Wisconsin Library, worksheet for evaluating web sites
