How can I use the Internet to find sources for my research paper?

The internet is a great resource when seeking out information for a research paper. However, you have to be very careful when using the internet for research. One, plagiarism is real. You can't just cite things off the Internet and use them as your own. You always want to make sure that you use credible resources for research. Just because it is on the Internet doesn't make it true. Anyone can start a Website on the internet, can start rumours or can even make a Web site that makes it look like fact. So, make sure you use more than one internet source, and make sure you double check your research. Make sure that internet sources you use for research are credible, and make sure that you double check with more than one news agency. You may want to look things you found on the internet up in encyclopaedias and you want to make sure that it is a credible, time tested, resource.
