When it comes to finding information on a subject, most people start with tools like Google and Wikipedia. There are numerous advantages to this approach, such as...
there is plenty of content
it is easy to search
content is current/timely
it is convenient
However, there are drawbacks that need to be considered.
the volume of information can be overwhelming
there can be a lot of irrelevant retrieval
date coverage is often unclear
it can be difficult to determine what information is legitimate/authoritative/unbiased
search engines only index a fraction of the available data
some information may be fee-based and therefore inaccessible
In other words, a website might look good and be found relatively easily...but that does not mean it contains high quality information. Therefore it is necessary to become an expert at evaluating the trustworthiness of content. The same skills you will develop to evaluate websites will also help you evaluate scholarly content e.g. journal articles.
